Your erosion control BMPs meet regulation, but are they practical? Join Jerald Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina Evans, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the fourth installment of our advanced Accountable Sediment and Erosion Control Plans – Master Class Series, Using Erosion Control BMPs on Construction Sites, 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 construction sites 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 Accountable Sediment and Erosion Control Plans – 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 designers, reviewers, and contractors.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following:
- 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.
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.
