Presented by Kwok Wing Leong, PE(Calif), M.ASCE, CISEC, NGICP
Work experiences include civil engineering design, development & construction supervision, of highway, geosystems on “soft-soil” load support techniques, flexible & sustainable drainage channels “landfill-caps”, water & sewerage systems, park systems & trails, storm water management, river geomorphology, re-directive river training methodology & techniques where rivers “heals-its-own-eroded embankments”, “green” & sustainable river channel protection(following MSMA principles, NFC-UK..)...
Whilst in Malaysia, established manufacturing facility to reuse palm oil and coconut waste for sustainable slope erosion protection and vegetated riverbank structures, a “green” alternative to hardcore civil works, projects under JPS MSMA program “lead-by-example”.
Engineer Leong is working on natural streambank protection using “Thalweg” Management techniques that provide a viable alternative to traditional civil engineering and meeting the river’s geomorphologic needs.
Speaker, trainer (CPESC-past, CESSWI-past), MSMA2(past), CISEC & LDP2M2 and “part-time” researcher with special focus on Best Management Practices BMPs for erosion, sediment control and water quality improvement especially from development and construction sites.
Research and development of Effective Sediment Containment Systems for Construction Sites at Reduced Site Foot-print for maximum savings of cost to the environment and owner. Applications include PE-BMPs of anionic polymers for Passive and Active Systems (PTS & ATS) with various “hybrids” to custom site requirements.
