Erosion Control 2-for-1 Special: Solutions for Storm Events

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course 1 - Designing Erosion Control Solutions for Extreme Storm Events

Mother Nature has many weapons in her arsenal, and each year we see increases in the intensity and in the frequency of 100-year storm events. And with stronger storms comes an increased need for erosion control protection. Are you and your site ready for the next big one? And how can you be ready cost-effectively?

Join Jill Pack for a webcast exploring how to properly design and implement erosion control systems to effectively manage high-flow 100-year storm events using a natural vegetated approach. Discussion includes the latest in erosion control technologies and design tools, benefits compared to traditional designs, and how you can design and apply these new innovations to your projects.

In this webcast, we'll start by discussing the 100-year storm, its increasing erosion potential, and what this means for your site. Pack will then outline the latest in erosion control technologies (e.g., geosynthetics, scour transition, etc.) and design tools available for managing high-flow storm events with vegetated designs. Within this discussion, we'll dive into the details of using geosynthetic reinforced erosion control systems (including their designs, applications, and benefits) and explore how using a combination of erosion control systems and geosynthetic reinforcement solutions can improve your erosion control while cutting costs. Pack will also present a comparison of traditional versus naturally vegetated designs highlighting the differences in project cost, environmental impact, and installation time. Finally, Pack will present real-world examples, project site examples, and case studies of extreme storm events, the applications used to successfully mitigate erosion control issues, and how you can apply these to your site.

Using a combination of project site examples, simple design tools, and the latest in erosion control technologies, this course offers solutions for the reestablishment or the preservation of soils and vegetation for a wide range of applications.

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

  • Understand the benefits of geosynthetic reinforced erosion control systems in managing high-flow storm events with vegetated designs.
  • Learn how to design and specify proper erosion control systems for 100-year storm events.
  • Learn the differences between project cost, environmental impact, and installation time in traditional and in natural vegetated designs.
  • Learn how to use low impact development (LID) for areas experiencing elevated storm risks.

Course 2 - Simplifying Stormwater Detention Design with Precast Concrete & Hydrologic Modeling

Increasingly, stormwater management is going underground. Offering smaller footprints, larger stormwater capture, and better flow mitigation, many facilities are looking to incorporate underground precast stormwater detention/retention systems at their sites to meet NPDES MS4 permit and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements. But…how do you know what type of system is best for you AND how can you accurately size and design a system for your site's stormwater needs?

Join Laddie Fromelius and Doug Beyerlein, P.E. for a webcast exploring underground precast concrete modular stormwater detention/retention systems; their design, installation, and maintenance best practices; and how you can design your system—using hydrologic and hydraulic modeling—to meet your stormwater management, NPDES MS4, and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements.

In this webcast, we'll explore precast concrete solutions for underground stormwater storage AND how you can use hydrologic and hydraulic stormwater modeling to design a system to fit your site. Within this discussion, we'll examine how precast stormwater detention/retention systems work, and their key considerations, elements, and advantages. Fromelius will outline the design, installation, and maintenance best practices for underground precast stormwater detention / retention systems, and how you can apply these to your site to maximize your storage capacity, mitigate your peak flow, and meet EPA recommendations. While discussing stormwater storage, Fromelius and Beyerlein will cover the principles of hydrology and hydraulic modeling and how you can use a stormwater modeling program to accurately (and easily) size stormwater control facilities  to meet NPDES MS4 permit and Low Impact Development (LID) requirements. We'll also take a tour through real-world examples and case studies of precast systems at work in several applications. And finally, you'll walk away with a step-by-step guide of how to apply underground precast concrete stormwater systems at your site.

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

  • Understand hydrologic and hydraulic modeling principles and basics.
  • Learn the design and benefits of an underground precast modular detention/retention system.
  • Learn the EPA preferred methods for mitigating the impact of stormwater runoff.
  • Learn how to save money by using advanced sizing techniques to reduce the size of your detention/retention facility.

* 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.
