Update on EPA's proposed 2017 Construction General Permit (CGP)

Instructor: Emily Halter

Date: Wednesday, April 27th at 12:00PM Central Time

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration.

Audience Level: All

Track: - Erosion/Sediment Control, Stormwater Management

Pricing: $20 for members /$35 for non-members

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the regulatory background on construction stormwater
  • Learn about the proposed changes for the 2017 Construction General Permit
  • Understand the process for submitting comments on the proposed permit and the timeline for finalization

Join us for a short 10-minute presentation from the US EPA on the changes to the 2017 Construction General Permit followed by a question/answer session. This webcast will run from 30 to 60 minutes.

In April 2016, EPA proposed the reissuance of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Construction General Permit (CGP). The CGP authorizes discharges of stormwater from construction sites disturbing one or more acres of land, or smaller sites that are part of a common plan of development or sale that disturb one or more acres of land. The permit applies in areas where EPA is the NPDES permitting authority, including Idaho, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New Mexico, Indian country lands, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, and most U.S. territories and protectorates. However, because many states model their own state general permits after EPA’s CGP, it could be useful for permittees and regulators in other areas to attend this webinar. EPA plans to finalize the new permit in January 2017, prior to the expiration of the current permit. This presentation will briefly provide background on construction stormwater regulations, the proposed changes for the 2017 CGP, and the process for submitting official comments on the proposed permit. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.

Gully Analysis and Control

Instructor: William F. Hansen, P.H.

Date: May 18, 12:00 PM Central Time

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration.

Audience Level: Basic Intermediate

Track: Erosion and Sediment Control

Pricing: $50 for members /$65 for non-members

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and differentiate gullies from other types of erosion and channel features.
  • Describe the primary elements of gully formation, enlargement and effects.
  • Provide gully control alternatives, selection considerations and examples.

Erosion and sediment control professionals are expected to recognize and understand various types of erosion, and the processes involved to effectively analyze and consider treatment options. The presentation will summarize the processes of gully formation, enlargement and effects and offer some examples of control methods applied on the Sumter National Forest in the piedmont of SC, USA. Treatments concentrated primarily on hillslope gullies which were often associated with ephemeral and intermittent streams. Gully control treatment began after the area was acquired as national forest in the 1930s, celebrated success as well as endured and learned from failure with most of the examples provided from the last 35 years.

Building Green: Atlanta’s Green Infrastructure Approach

Instructor: Cory Rayburn, CPESC, CFM, ENV SP

Date: June 15, 12:00 PM Central Time

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration.

Audience Level: Intermediate

Track: Other

Pricing: $50 for members /$65 for non-members

Learning Objectives:

  • Find out how the City of Atlanta successfully adopted and implemented the use of green infrastructure as a means of stormwater runoff volume reduction.
  • See examples of how the City has utilized green infrastructure as a means of regional combined sewer capacity relief, including the largest permeable paver roadway retrofit project in North America which is currently under construction in southeast Atlanta.
  • Learn how erosion and sediment control coupled with careful installation techniques can help to ensure the proper long-term function of green infrastructure practices.

The City of Atlanta has embraced the use of green infrastructure as a means of combined sewer capacity relief, ecosystem restoration, economic stimulus, and water quality control. In February of 2013, Atlanta adopted one of the most far-reaching stormwater management ordinances in the country. The ordinance helped lay the groundwork for a robust green infrastructure program, both for private development as well as capital improvement projects undertaken by the City. To date, the City has permitted over 2,000 construction projects that utilize green infrastructure to reduce the volume of polluted runoff. In addition, the City is currently installing the largest permeable paver roadway project in North America - six miles - to help alleviate flooding in neighborhoods served by the City’s combined sewer infrastructure.

Fluvial Geomorphology (Two Part Event)

Instructor: Dr. David Williams, Ph.D., PE, PH, CPESC, D.WRE, F. ASCE

Date: Wednesday, July 6, 2016 & Thursday, July 7, 2016

PDH: 3 PDH

Audience Level: All

Track: Wetland, Stream Bank, and Shoreline Restoration

Pricing: $120 for members /$150 for non-members


In this two part webinar, fluvial geomorphology's theories and principals are presented. This will include theoretical and applied approaches related to river forms (and how they got that way!) that would be helpful to all people working with river systems. We will also look at how fluvial geomorphology intersects with other disciplines (e.g., hydrology, geology, ecology, engineering, etc.) that are part of a river project. This will especially be beneficial to those involved in stream restoration.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn fluvial geomorphology concepts and terms.
  • Understand the fundamental forces of nature that determine the forms of a river.
  • Understand the relationship of river forms, stream bank protection, and erosion control.
  • Learn the significance stream restoration concepts as they relate to fluvial geomorphology.
  • Recognize the functional components of a watershed and river.

Start Here: A Primer on Erosion and Sediment Control

Instructor: Craig Benson, M.S.

Date: July 20, 12:00 PM Central Time

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration.

Audience Level: Beginner

Track: Erosion and Sediment Control

Pricing: $50 for members /$65 for non-members

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe basic erosional processes and differentiate between mass wasting, fluvial, and wind erosion, as well as define the terms erosion, sediment, sedimentation.
  • Participants will be able to list four lines of defense for site management: flow controls, erosion controls, sediment controls, and good housekeeping.
  • Participants will learn the importance of employing multiple BMPs to establish a logical sequence of treatment on a construction site.

This introductory course is a must for those new to the erosion and sediment control field or those wishing to brush up on the fundamentals.  The course will describe the basic categories and types of erosion, as well as their triggers on construction sites.  A logical sequence of four lines of defense, including flow controls, erosion controls, sediment controls and good housekeeping will be outlined as well as an overview of BMPs and products available for each line of defense.
