Explore the fundamentals of river system performance, their intricacies and dynamics, as well as fluvial geomorphology's theories and principals. This webinar not only will be helpful in understanding overall river behavior but will also be beneficial to people interested in river sedimentation, hydraulics, streambank erosion and protection and stream restoration.
From the renewal of the Texas Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) to the California Industrial General Permit (IGP), there are increased demands on industrial and commercial facilities to manage stormwater. From sampling to inspections to Best Management Practices (BMPs), there can be a lot for facility managers, environmental consultants/engineers, and regulators to understand regarding the compliance requirements of these industrial stormwater permits. In this webinar, we break down these ever-more complex permit requirements into understandable and actionable topics that can enable efficient compliance. Drawing on our combined experience with regulation development, BMP testing, and BMP inspections and maintenance from the field, our presenters will give you the confidence you need to understand and comply with industrial stormwater regulations. We will present the best practices in the industry on how to setup a robust program from a centralized records system to a dedicated stormwater team. Our presenters will dive into the risks associated with non-compliance including examples of poorly setup programs and the financial ramifications of enforcement actions and lawsuits. In addition, technical considerations will be discussed, including identifying and implementing the appropriate structural and non-structural BMPs, from general housekeeping to filtration media in structural BMPs. In the second half of the webinar, we will cover how to setup and run a monitoring program for industrial facilities from sampling to inspection (routine and visual) best practices. We will also cover how to reduce spending on your stormwater program and ensure compliance with all the permit requirements by leveraging online and mobile technologies. We will focus on how new technologies are being used in the stormwater industry to gather and understand data, train staff, and comply with permits.
These events are one hour in length and worth 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH)/0.1 CEU (Continuing Education Unit).
Propex GeoSolutions invites you to attend an exclusive webinar on Design Procedures for Geosynthetic Rolled Erosion Control Products (GRECPs). In a sixty minute webinar, you will be able to understand and acquire knowledge on erosion control, turf reinforcement mats, and geosynthetic solutions; as well as, comprehend and recognize the effects of a TRM. The webinar event is designed for all attendees to learn and interact with Engineering Services Manager, Drew Loizeaux. All attendees with have the opportunity to discuss design procedures and ask questions at the end of the event. Don’t wait until last minute, sign up today and we will assure you that all your questions will be answered. Hope to see you on the web soon! *Sponsored webinars are free to IECA members. $15 for non-members.
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.
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.
There are many terms used to describe the different varieties of erosion control products, like organic, natural, weed free, photodegradable and biodegradable. Many times the terms used to describe them are misunderstood. This presentation will define each of these terms and show you were the products should be used. * Sponsored webinars are free to IECA members. $15 for non-members.
This technical presentation will cover the testing and specifying of Rolled Erosion Control Products based on ASTM standardized test methods. This presentation will describe and recommend test methods that should be used to evaluate Rolled Erosion Control Products for quality, uniformity, and performance. In addition, data will be presented that correlates testing of material properties to field performance characteristics. Attendees will learn of the effort by the National Transportation Product Evaluation Program (NTPEP) to create a nationwide system of testing requirements for Rolled Erosion Control Products, and how this effort has created a knowledge base of data derived from standardized test methods that allows end users, manufacturers, and designers to determine which Rolled Erosion Control Product is appropriate for use on any given construction site.
This presentation will provide attendees with an increased knowledge of underground stormwater systems, benefits, and best practices. By beginning with a review of stormwater design and evolution over me, attendees will acquire a strong foundational understanding of overall stormwater management. The presentation will explore methods ranging from stone beds to proprietary products like arches and module boxes, while also providing attendees with information about unique applications and innovative ways to incorporate different underground systems into a design.
Learn how to design LID treatment systems by understanding the critical role native soils, hydrologic conditions and position on the landscape factor into the design process. Understand the importance of the construction sequence for LID systems to ensure their long term functionality.
This technical presentation will discuss research results of large-scale testing efforts focused on developing technologies to provide improved performance of sediment basins. The study, conducted at the Auburn University - Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility (AU-ESCTF), includes the investigation of traditional and advanced passive treatment using a lamella-based high-rate settling plate system. Testing procedures, data collection, performance characteristics, and results of the study will be discussed.
When constructing in arid environments erosion and sediment control is often overlooked. Emphasis is on dust control and wind borne erosion with erosion from water and runoff left as an after- thought all too often. In arid environments when a rain storm occurs contractors are left scrambling while being reactive and developers are left exposed to risk and unaccounted for costs. Learn how to successfully stabilize soils in areas with less than 10 inches of annual rainfall (on average), as well as how to establish vegetation in such extreme climatic conditions in a proactive manner.
Cuando se construye en ambientes áridos la erosión y sedimentación son a menudo pasados por alto. Énfasis en control de polvo y erosióón eólica con erosión hídrica y escorrentía como última prioridad ocurre a menudo. En ambientes áridos cuando una tormenta ocurre los contratistas se encuentran sin mucho que hacer cuando reaccionan, mientras que los urbanizadores corren con los riesgos y enfrentan costos inesperados. Aprenda cómo estabilizar exitosamente suelos en áreas con menos de 250 mm de precipitación anual (en promedio), así como también cómo estabilizar vegetación en tales condiciones climáticas extremas.
Through the intentional management of communication and work, the Alabama Department of Transportation protected water quality and made history on an environmentally and politically sensitive highway project. Costs were reduced, safety was enhanced, quality was improved, production was increased, and sediment yield was reduced by over 99%. Impossible? Come See.
