Are your temporary BMPs reliable? Join Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CISEC, CPESC and Tina R. Wills, PE, CISEC for the third installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control Master Class Series and the second part of our Effective Sediment Containment Systems Series, Limitations of Commonly Found Construction Site Sediment Control BMPs, exploring temporary BMPs, their limitations (e.g., barrier BMPs), and the principals 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) exist more for show and tell than for reducing sediment from runoff waters. While the objective of these temporary BMPs is to capture significant amounts of 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 (3rded.), this third module of our Sediment and Erosion Control 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 Wills 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 Wills investigate why placing barriers in drainage channels result in sediment or erosion control depending upon proper planning and implementation.
Webcast attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.
- Review and assess sediment control temporary BMPs
- Identification of the limitations of barrier BMPs
- Application of scientific and engineering principles in assessing the effectiveness of barriers to “protect inlets”
- Evaluation of barriers in drainage channels
Sediment and Erosion Control Master Class Webcast Series
This Limitations of Commonly Found Construction Site Sediment Control BM Ps webcast is the third module in our Sediment and Erosion Control Master Class Webcast Series. Currently, we are offering the full Master Class Webcast Series and manual at a discounted rate. If you are interested in purchasing the full Master Class Webcast Series, you can find information and the registration link here.
This webcast is based upon and works through the associated chapters in Jerald S. Fifield’s Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.), 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 (3rded.) with the webcast.
* Webcast presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15-20 minute question and answer session to follow. Webcast may exceed scheduled time.
* Please note manual shipping requires 5-7 business days.
