Are your temporary BMPs reliable? Join Jerald Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina Wills, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the second installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series, Limitations of Commonly Found Roadway Sediment Control BMPs, exploring temporary BMPs, their limitations (e.g., barrier BMPs) on roadway sites, and the principals and practice in assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of barrier BMPs on roadway projects.
Travel to any typical construction site, and you will find temporary BMPs that (unfortunately) become more for show and tell than for reducing sediment from runoff waters. While the objective of these temporary BMPs is to capture sediment, the reality is that only a small reduction occurs when flood flow conditions occur.
This webinar will be available live on Wednesday, Nov. 18th, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PST / 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EST, and available on-demand after the live event. Register for the event by clicking the button below.
Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.), this second module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series explores the effectiveness of shallow temporary barriers to remove sediment from roadway 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.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.
- Review and assess sediment control temporary BMPs.
- Identify the limitations of barrier BMPs.
- Apply scientific and engineering principles in assessing the effectiveness of barriers to “protect inlets”.
- Evaluate barriers in drainage channels.
