Stormwater 2-for-1 Special: Post-Construction Stormwater BMPs Design and Construction


Course 1 - BMP Design and Selection - Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Computer Modeling

Post-construction stormwater BMPs are not one size fits all. And as the project lead – between calculating the stormwater runoff rates and volumes, calculating the flow velocity and conveyance / impoundment depths, and modeling these in your specific environment – selecting and designing the proper stormwater BMP for your site can be tricky.

Join Gene Rovak for the third session in our Post-Construction Stormwater BMPs Master Class Series exploring the computational hydrologic and hydraulic methods used in stormwater BMP design and selection (e.g., LID BMPs); available computer modeling systems and applications; real-world case study examples of successful BMP selection and design; AND how you can apply these to your project to ensure success.

In this online training webinar, we'll start with a look at the key elements (jurisdictional and physical), considerations, and approaches for successful stormwater BMP design and selection. Rovak will then dive into the basic computational hydrologic methods (e.g., components, considerations, and calculations) used to determine stormwater runoff rates and volumes. Building on this, we'll outline the hydraulic methods used to calculate velocities of flow and depths of conveyances and impoundments, and how you can apply these hydraulic and hydrologic methods to your projects. We'll also take an in-depth look into the available computer modeling programs, their applications, strengths and weaknesses, and how you can apply these in your design process. Finally, we'll take a tour of real-world case studies (with an emphasis on LID-BMP facilities) which have put these methods to work. We'll explore how they did it, how it helped them meet their NPDES MS4 regulations, their ongoing results, and how you can apply the lessons learned to your site.

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

  • Learn the basics of computational hydrologic and hydraulic methods used to determine BMP design and selection.
  • Learn the available computer modeling software (e.g., applications, strengths, and weaknesses) and how you can apply these in your modeling.
  • Learn the key BMP design and selection elements, considerations, and approaches when choosing BMPs for your project.
  • Gain the lessons learned from real-world case studies (including LID-BMPs) employing hydrologic, hydraulic, and computer modeling in their BMP design and selection and how you can apply these to your project. 

Course 2 - BMP Construction Methods and Techniques - Getting the Little Things Right

Even the best stormwater BMP design, ultimately is only as good as its construction. And the key to successful construction? A balanced mix of field engineering, natural science know-how, and great construction technique.

Join Ted Hartsig for the fourth session of our Post-Construction Stormwater BMPs Master Class Series exploring the basics of successful stormwater BMP construction, including: structural requirements and materials; construction methods; scheduling and sequencing; and soil function and planting requirements.

In this online training webinar, Hartsig will cover how to build your BMPs right the first time…and fix it if you didn't. We'll start our discussion with a look at the pre-construction considerations (e.g., design set, materials, constraints, etc.) and construction preparations. Within this discussion, we'll explore stormwater BMP structural requirements, available materials, and construction methods. Additionally, we'll take a look at pre-construction activities including: BMP construction sequencing and scheduling; material procurement, deliver, and staging; and site preparation. Next, Hartsig will outline the key stormwater BMP components, considerations, and techniques for: soil preparation (e.g., function in the BMP, planting requirements, etc.); water inflow and outflow management; and establishing vegetation. And finally, we'll cover some additional tips, tricks, and lessons learned from the stormwater BMP construction field, as well as common BMP construction pitfalls and what to do if (or when) these mistakes are made. This webinar is designed to leave the attendee with a checklist to ensure successful post-construction stormwater BMP performance.

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

  • Learn about construction methods and sequencing for stormwater BMPs – and why this matters.
  • Learn the quality construction materials and how they contribute to achieving project goals quickly and effectively.
  • Understand how soil and vegetation work together to manage stormwater runoff and the planting requirements to ensure vegetation establishment.
  • Learn the steps to establish BMPs correctly the first time, and what to do when (if) mistakes are made.

* Presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 1520 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.
* Purchase of this special allows you access to the presentations for 6 months from the order date.
