Webinars and Events




Advanced Stormwater Treatment: Dissolved Pollutants
Presenter:
Andrew J. Erickson, M.S., P.E.,
Research Fellow,
St. Anthony Falls laboratory, University of Minnesota.
Tues., February 9 @ 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST,
1-1.5hr*
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs

How effective are your stormwater treatments in capturing dissolved loads? With an average of 45% of the phosphorus load and ~50% of the metal load transported through treatment practices to receiving waters in dissolved form, advanced treatment is imperative. Join returning speaker, Andrew Erickson, to explore cost-effective, field-tested methods to capture stormwater dissolved pollutants and optimize your stormwater treatment performance, AND how you can apply these to your projects to effectively capture the dissolved pollutant fraction.

Introduction to RUSLE 2

Introduction to RUSLE2
Applications for Construction Site
Erosion Control

Presenters:
Terrence J. Toy, Ph.D., CPESC
Consultant; Professor Emeritus, University of Denver
David T. Lightle, CPESC
Erosion Model Consultant

1-1.5hr*
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs

Do you know your RUSLE2? Join Terry Toy and David Lightle as they explore the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE2) and how you can utilize RUSLE2 to estimate erosion on construction sites based upon the climate, soils, topography, surface cover, and management practices. In this webinar we'll cover: the RUSLE2 basics, the program interface features, program input methods to characterize the construction site's erosional environment, and how to interpret the soil loss and sediment yield outputs.

Energy Planning

Energy Master Planning
for Facilities

Presenter:
Jared Higgins, PE, CEM, CPMP, GGP
Mechanical Engineering Corporate Associate and
Team Leader
Parkhill, Smith, & Cooper, Inc.
Thurs., February 25th @ 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST
1-1.5hr*
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs

With energy regulations and costs on the rise, many companies are implementing Energy Master Plans (EMPs) to reduce their energy consumption and costs. These EMPs analyze facility systems, identify potential issues, and outline energy conservation measures to meet today and tomorrow's regulations. Do you have an Energy Master Plan in place? Should you?

Join returning speaker Jared Higgins to explore how to design an Energy Master Plan (EMP) for your facility (or facilities) that reduces your energy use, meets federal and state regulations, AND lowers your operational costs.

Get fluent in surface water! Join industry expert and two-time former IECA President,
Dr. David T. Williams, for our 4-part live and on-demand master class series exploring surface water behavior, effects, and techniques from the first rain drops to stream restoration. In this series we'll start with a look at rainfall (hydrology), its effect on rivers and the surrounding environment (hydraulics), how water forms the changing river environment (fluvial geomorphology), and how these effect and are applied to stream restoration.
