Are your temporary BMPs reliable? Join Jerald Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina Evans, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the second installment of our advanced Accountable Sediment and Erosion Control Plans – Master Class Series, Limitations of Commonly Found Construction Site Sediment Control BMPs, exploring temporary BMPs, their limitations (e.g., barrier BMPs), and the principles 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 (3rd ed.), this second module of our Accountable Sediment and Erosion Control Plans – Master Class Series explores the effectiveness of shallow temporary barriers to remove sediment from 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.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following:
- 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.
The Latest in Developing Sediment and Erosion Control Plans 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.
