How effective is your sediment and erosion control plan for a construction site? Join Jerald Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina Evans, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the fifth installment of our advanced Accountable Sediment and Erosion Control Plans – Master Class Series, and the first part of our Effective Sediment & Erosion Control Plans for Construction Sites – Mini Series, What S&EC Designers and Reviewers Need to Understand and Complete exploring the problems on how to develop, review and implement effective sediment and erosion control plans for construction sites that not only meet local regulations, but are effective in minimizing the discharge of sediment.
While a sediment and erosion control (S&EC) plan may meet regulatory requirements, it’s useless if it is not effective and cannot be implemented by the contractor. Too often S&EC plans meet local regulatory requirements, but are not practical for the contractor to implement on a roadway project, which often creates noncompliant situations. Designers and reviewers need to incorporate their knowledge of sediment and erosion control methods to develop effective S&EC plans which meet regulatory requirements, are practical, and perform once implemented. Effective S&EC plans are those that contractors can implement knowing that designers and reviewers understand BMP limitations, provide sufficient information for timely installation, and take into account that construction sites are dynamic.
Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rd ed.), this fifth module of our Accountable Sediment and Erosion Control Plans – Master Class Series explores the issues in ineffective sediment and erosion control plans, and presents S&EC plan development guidelines to overcome these issues on construction sites. Fifield and Evans present their innovative process of using separate drawings to create effective S&EC plans for construction that are cost effective, logical to implement, and minimize non-compliant situations.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following:
- Understand the problems associated with complex S&EC plans.
- Identify the need to do planning that results in practical development of S&EC plans.
- Understand how communication is essential for implementing an effective S&EC plan.
- Understand how to develop and review plans that are cost effective and practical to implement.
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.
