Using Erosion Control BMPs on Roadway Projects

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Your erosion control BMPs meet regulation, but are they practical? Join Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina R. Evans, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the fourth installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class SeriesUsing Erosion Control BMPs on Roadway Projects, exploring the available erosion control methods and diversion structures, as well as how to develop seed mixtures, calculate fertilizer rates, and evaluate TRMs in drainage channels.

Whenever possible, designers and reviewers must identify the timely use of erosion control practices on roadway projects to ensure the generation of sediment is minimized in order to minimize the discharge. However, while erosion control practices are imperative, construction practicality must also exist.

Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rd ed.), this fourth module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series explores the erosion control methods and diversion structures (e.g., slope drains) available to contractors and their limitations, as well as how to develop seed mixtures, calculate fertilizer rates, and evaluate TRMs in drainage channels. Within this discussion, Fifield and Evans discuss how to develop seed mixtures for local climate conditions, what is necessary to calculate fertilizer application rates, the process of reviewing types of mulches, etc. Fifield and Evans also discuss how the use of shear stress values are necessary to select a TRM for drainage channels, as well as reviewing other erosion control practices available to designer, reviewers, and contractors.

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

  • Understand the various erosion control methods available to contractors.
  • Identify the limitations of erosion control BMPs.
  • Understand how to develop seed mixtures and calculate fertilizer rates.
  • Evaluate the use of TRMs in drainage channels.

This Using Erosion Control BMPs on Roadway Projects presentation is the fourth 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 Roadway Projects
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.
