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 20 webinar and advance your knowledge of sediment and erosion control BMPs.
Effective Sediment & Erosion Control Plans, Part 1: What Designers and Reviewers Need to Understand and Complete
May 20, 2015; 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
How effective is your sediment and erosion control plan for a construction site? Join Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina R. Wills, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the fifth installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series, and the first part of our Effective Sediment & Erosion Control Plans for Construction Sites mini-series, What Designers and Reviewers Need to Understand and Complete exploring the problems on how to develop, review and implement effective sediment and erosion control plans for construction sites that not only meet local regulations, but are effective in minimizing the discharge of sediment.
While a sediment and erosion control (S&EC) plan may meet regulatory requirements, it’s useless if it is not effective and cannot be implemented by the contractor. Too often S&EC plans meet local regulatory requirements, but are not practical for the contractor to implement on a roadway project, which often creates noncompliant situations. Designers and reviewers need to incorporate their knowledge of sediment and erosion control methods to develop effective S&EC plans which meet regulatory requirements, are practical, and perform once implemented. Effective S&EC plans are those that contractors can implement knowing that designers and reviewers understand BMP limitations, provide sufficient information for timely installation, and take into account that construction sites are dynamic.
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 fifth module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series explores the issues in ineffective sediment and erosion control plans, and presents S&EC plan development guidelines to overcome these issues on construction sites. Fifield and Wills present their innovative process of using separate drawings to create effective S&EC plans for construction that are cost effective, logical to implement, and minimize non-compliant situations.
Future Sessions include:
• May 27: Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans, Part II: Calculating Performance Goals and Plan Effectiveness
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.
