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 FREE webinar 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 (e.g., geosynthetic reinforced systems) and design tools; benefits compared to traditional designs (e.g., reduced cost, environmental impact, and installation time); and how you can design and apply these new innovations to your erosion control projects to better manage your elevated storm events.
This webinar will be available live on Tuesday, August 18th, 2015, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PDT /2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EDT, and available on-demand after the live event. Register for the event by clicking the button below.
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.
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.
