Designing Effective Sediment Basins and Traps

At Forester University, our live webinars present you with the sediment control experts, who share best management practices, informative project case studies, and real-world applications. Join our faculty of industry experts in our live webinar (or series of webinars) exploring the technological innovations, project site applications, and any associated regulatory requirements in a comprehensive discussion of this topic. Please see below for a full description and registration information for this event.

Are your containment (a.k.a., sediment basins/traps) systems effective? Join Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina R. Wills, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the third installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series, Designing Effective Sediment Basins and Traps, exploring a scientific and engineering assessment of parameters necessary to capture suspended particles while flood flows are discharging from a containment system.

The role of any sediment containment system (SCS) is to allow for the settlement of soil particles that are suspended in runoff waters. While SCSs are the only effective method for removing sediment from runoff waters, in order to be effective in protecting the environment, they must be able to capture design size particles during flood flow conditions.

Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.), this third module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series presents a scientific and engineering assessment of parameters necessary to capture design size particles while flood flows are discharging from a containment system. Fifield and Wills demonstrate that while effectiveness of an SCS is dependent more upon internal flow velocities and flow distances, the need to consider length-width ratios are applicable to construction sites. Additionally, Fifield and Wills present an assessment of “Flow-Through Systems” to capture polymer treated sediments demonstrating how a small SCS can have a high rate of effectiveness during flood flow events.

Learning Objectives

  • Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.
  • Understand the types of SCSs and effective outlet structures.
  • Understand why designers and reviewers must develop SCS for design flood flow events.
  • Apply scientific and engineering methods on developing parameters.
  • Understand how the use of polymers can increase the effectiveness of an SCS.

Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series
This Designing Effective Sediment Basins and Traps presentation is the third module in our Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Series. Currently, we are offering the full Master Class Series and manual at a discounted rate. If you are interested in purchasing the full Master Class Series, you can find information and the registration link here.

Sediment and Erosion Control for Construction Sites Master Class Manual
This presentation is based upon and works through the associated chapters in Jerald S. Fifield’s Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.), and is presented as an intermediate to advanced exploration of erosion, sediment, and sedimentation. As such, we recommend purchasing the manual Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rd ed.) with the presentation.
