Effective Sediment & Erosion Control Plans, Part 2: Calculating Performance Goals and Plan Effectiveness

Calculating Performance Goals

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 the applications of the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation, or RUSLE2, per your specific project parameters? Please see below to register for this May 27 webinar and advance your knowledge of Sediment and Erosion Control BMPs.

Are you meeting your performance goals? Join Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina R. Wills, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the sixth installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series,and the second part of our Effective Sediment & Erosion Control Plans for Construction sites mini-series, Calculating Performance Goals and Plan Effectiveness. Learn about calculating performance goals (PG) at major discharge points of a construction site using the results of RUSLE2, as well how to calculate effectiveness (EFF) of sediment and erosion control plans before implementation.

Effective construction site sediment and erosion control plans developed by designers and approved by regulatory agencies must meet specific performance goals (PG), but, all too often some performance goals cannot be achieved (e.g., discharge of sediment cannot occur) or remain idealistic (e.g., BMPs must remain functional for all storm events). Calculating erosion rates by RUSLE2 is becoming more commonplace due to the computer algorithms that better simulate vegetation establishment, rendering it an excellent tool to assess how road building activities affect a watershed and allows for calculating performance goals.

StormCon 2017 will be held in Bellevue, WA at the Meydenbauer Convention Center, Aug. 27–31.  Save $65.00 and register now  to earn educational credits; learn in sessions, workshops, and interactive tour formats; network with other attendees from around the world; and see technology from 185 exhibiting companies.

Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.), this sixth module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series develops a construction site, and puts forth the process and calculations by which using the results of RUSLE2 designers and reviewers can calculate performance goals (PG) at major discharge points by assuming predevelopment discharge of sediment is to be maintained while construction activities occur. Additionally Fifield and Wills discuss how designers and reviewers can calculate effectiveness (EFF) of sediment and erosion control plans before implementation that strive to meet performance goals.

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.
