At Forester University, our erosion control experts lead live webinars showcasing innovative technologies, project planning, erosion control best management practices (BMPs), and regulatory requirements in a comprehensive format focused upon your continuing education goals.
Are you a sediment and erosion control professional interested in better understanding construction site sediment control methods? Please see below to register for this May 13th webinar, and advance your knowledge of sediment and erosion control BMPs.
Using Erosion Control BMPs on Construction Sites
May 13, 2015, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Your erosion control BMPs meet regulation, but are they practical? Join Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina R. Wills, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the fourth installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series, Using Erosion Control BMPs on Construction Sites, exploring the available erosion control methods and diversion structures, as well as how to develop seed mixtures, calculate fertilizer rates, and evaluate TRMs in drainage channels.
Whenever possible, designers and reviewers must identify the timely use of erosion control practices on construction sites to ensure the generation of sediment is minimized in order to minimize the discharge. However, while erosion control practices are imperative, construction practicality must also exist.
Pre-conference workshops Repairing Entrenched, Incised, and Degraded (Urbanized) Streams – Techniques and Case Studies Monday August 28, 2017 and BMP Selection to Improve Your Watershed Monday August 28, 2017. You may register for these without also registering for the annual conference. Download the StormCon Conference Program here.
Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.), this fourth module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series explores the erosion control methods and diversion structures (e.g., slope drains) available to contractors and their limitations, as well as how to develop seed mixtures, calculate fertilizer rates, and evaluate TRMs in drainage channels. Within this discussion, Fifield and Wills discuss how to develop seed mixtures for local climate conditions, what is necessary to calculate fertilizer application rates, the process of reviewing types of mulches, etc. Fifield and Wills also discuss how the use of shear stress values are necessary to select a TRM for drainage channels, as well as reviewing other erosion control practices available to designer, reviewers, and contractors.
Future Sessions include:
• May 20: Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans, Part I: What Designers & Reviewers Need to Understand and Complete
• May 27: Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans, Part II: Calculating Performance Goals and Plan Effectiveness
• Three interactive workshops
All sessions and workshops are presented live and on-demand so you may attend at your leisure, and are accompanied by a quiz to test your skills. Learning on your own at home online, or with a group, Forester University’s Master Class Series is designed as an interactive experience with the leading experts in the field.
