Erosion Control and Stormwater Training: Webinars
Bookmark and Share

New ways to get the training you need

Webinars are an effective way to educate your staff while further reducing the cost of training by eliminating instructor travel expenses. Often, the lead time for arranging this type of training is shorter than a traditional course.

All webinars are recorded and added to IECA's eLearning system within 24 hours of the webinar date. Check out the eLearning system for recorded webinars and other on demand training.

Upcoming Webinars

Using Coir Products as Best Management Practices (BMPs) - Sponsored by East Coast Erosion

Instructor: Diane Hitt

Date: Nov 5, 12:00 PM Central Time

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

Educational Track: Erosion & Sediment Control

Level: Intermediate

Pricing: Free for members/$15 for non-members

Learning Objectives:

  • Benefits of coir products in erosion control design and for bioengineering.
  • Using coir products as alternatives for traditional stabilization methods.
  • Advantages of coir products over other products for stream bank and shore line stabilization.

Coir-based rolled erosion control products (recps), open weave textile coir mats (owts), and coir fiber logs are ideal products for the minimization of erosion and the resulting sedimentation. Coir-based recps are manufactured as either temporary erosion control blankets or as permanent turf reinforcement mats (trms). Open weave coir mats are manufactured in various weights ranging from 400 grams/sq meter to 900 grams/sq meter. Coir fiber logs are excellent products for stream bank and shoreline stabilization and are available in diameters from 6" to 20"

Tillage as a Stormwater Practice

Instructor: Dr. Richard (Rich) A. McLaughlin, Ph.D.

Date: November 19, 12:00 PM Central Time

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

Level: All

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

Learning Objectives:

  • Link soil physical and chemical condition to stormwater runoff
  • Understand methods to evaluate the soil condition
  • Determine remediation methods to create highly permeable soil and reduced runoff

Soils are often a neglected part of stormwater planning, although they can be a big asset. Post-construction soils are commonly in poor physical condition with little fertility to grow grass or other plants. In this webinar, we will discuss ways to assess soil condition and methods to create the environment for reduced runoff and enhanced plant growth.

TMDL Compliance Planning

Instructor: Craig S. Benson

Date: December 17, 12:00 PM Central Time

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

Level: Intermediate

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

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the process of sediment TMDL development, implementation and monitoring
  • Identify categories of land use that contribute to sediment pollution
  • Develop process for selecting BMPs for each land use

This webinar is a combination of basic construction specifications training and information specific to E&SC. The SWPPP, the NPDES Permit and the EPA or State regulations are not construction specifications. This course includes seven modules, which range from general specifications theory and practice to E&SC specifics with example specifications included.

The Integration of Geosynthetics, Mechanical Structures & Vegetation for Stabilization of Slopes and Embankments

Instructor: Jerry B. Sanders, CPESC

Date: January 22 and January 23, 12:00 PM Central Time

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

Level: Intermediate

Pricing: $50 for members /$65 for non-members (one part only) or $75 for members /$85 for non-members (both parts)

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to identify different types of slope failures.
  • Learn the use of Vegetation and Live Staking for Slope Stability
  • Learn how to enhance slope stability by Integrating Geosynthetics and Mechanical Structures with Vegetation

This session will take the participants through the evaluation, design and implementation procedures required for the remediation of a variety of slope and embankment failures. The participant will learn how to identify the different types of slope failure and how to implement remediation procedures that incorporate Man Made products with vegetation to repair and enhance the failed slope and/or embankment.

Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control: Best Practices and Low Impact Solutions

Instructor: Dr. T. Andrew Earles, Ph.D., P.E., D.WRE, CPESC

Date: March 18, 12:00 PM Central Time

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

Level: Intermediate and advanced—basic knowledge of stormwater permitting and BMPs is desirable

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

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how construction phase stormwater management relates to the ultimate success or failure of post-construction practices.
  • Understand peak flow rate, volume and runoff frequency changes due to development of impervious surfaces and how to mitigate.
  • Learn about common practices for Low Impact Development (LID) and Green Infrastructure (GI) and how construction activities, methods and details affect performance.

Often construction-phase and post-construction stormwater management are separate worlds (different permits, different plans, different practices, etc.); however, in terms of hydrology, water quality and the ultimate success or failure of post-construction practices, they are closely related. This webinar will briefly review stormwater regulations for construction and post-construction and will explain how hydrology is a unifying theme. The webinar will include state-of-the-practice details for common LID and GI practices and will focus on details that are important to pay attention to during construction for successful stormwater quality management for the long term.
