Designing Effective Sediment Containment Systems for Roadway Projects

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Are your containment (a.k.a., sediment basins/traps) systems effective? Join Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., PH,  CPESC,  CISEC and Tina R. Evans, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the third installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class SeriesDesigning Effective Sediment Containment Systems for Roadway Projects, 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 (3rd ed.), this third module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects 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 Evans 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 roadway projects. Additionally, Fifield and Evans 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.

This Designing Effective Sediment Containment Systems for Roadway Projects Plans  presentation is the third 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.
