Limitations of Commonly Found Roadway Sediment Control BMPs - 2016

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Are your temporary BMPs reliable? Join Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC,  CISEC, and Tina R. Evans, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the second installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series,Limitations of Commonly Found Roadway Sediment Control BMPs, exploring temporary BMPs, their limitations (e.g., barrier BMPs), and the principals and practice in assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of barrier BMPs.

Travel to any typical construction site, and you will find temporary BMPs that (unfortunately) become more for show and tell than for reducing sediment from runoff waters. While the objective of these temporary BMPs is to capture sediment, the reality is that only a small reduction occurs when flood flow conditions occur.

Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.), this second module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series explores the effectiveness of shallow temporary barriers to remove sediment from roadway construction site runoff waters through the application of mathematical and scientific principles. Join Fifield and Evans for a discussion with emphasis on the limitation of using barriers in front of storm sewer inlets and as check structures in drainage ditches. Additionally, Fifield and Evans investigate why placing barriers in drainage channels result in sediment or erosion control depending upon proper planning and implementation.

Learning Objectives
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.

  • Review and assess sediment control temporary BMPs.
  • Identify the limitations of barrier BMPs.
  • Apply scientific and engineering principles in assessing the effectiveness of barriers to "protect inlets".
  • Evaluate barriers in drainage channels.

Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects 
Master Class Series

This Limitations of Commonly Found Roadway Sediment Control BMPs presentation is the second module in our Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series. Currently, we are offering the full Master Class Series at a discounted rate. 

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 (3rd ed.), 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.


* Presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15-20 minute question and answer session to follow. Presentation may exceed scheduled time. 
*Each state and certification agency has different requirements; it is your responsibility to know what they are. Note that 1 PDH = 0.1 CEU.
