Join us on Tuesday, February 19th for IECA's Pre-Conference Workshop Program. IECA will be offering 6 half-day workshops, providing you the practical education you need to get the job done. Workshops include: Bioengineering for Slopes and Streams, Inspection and Maintenance of Post-Construction Water Quality BMPs, and High Altitude Revegetation, Erosion, Sediment, and Turbidity Control on Linear Projects, Naturalizing Performance Standards for Urban Channel Restoration and The 5 Ps to Motivate a Compliant Project.
SWM ponds require routine sediment removal in order to maintain stormwater quality and quantity control. Sediments typically contain common urban contaminants (e.g. petroleum hydrocarbons (PHCs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), road salt, etc.) which trigger non-hazardous waste disposal requirements. Landfill tipping fees can amount to hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars per pond. This webinar presents two recent sediment beneficial use case studies. These studies demonstrate how ecotoxicity tests and risks assessments allowed the sediments to be used as topsoil amendments as cost effective and environmentally sustainable alternatives to landfill disposal. These studies set the precedent for future SWM pond sediment beneficial use projects as well.
The Jerry Fifield Scholarship will be given to students who show a passion to expand their career in the Erosion and Sediment Control Industry. Students who attain this Scholarship will be given a one year free Student Membership for IECA. For any Scholarships inquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
