Effective Sediment & Erosion Control Plans, Part I: What Designers & Reviewers Need to Understand & Complete

Oct. 6, 2015

How effective is your sediment and erosion control plan for a roadway project? Join Jerald Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina Wills, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the fifth installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion for Roadway Projects Control Master Class Series and the first part of our Effective Sediment & Erosion Control Plans for Roadway Projects mini-series, What Designers and Reviewers Need to Understand and Complete exploring the problems on how to develop, review and implement effective sediment and erosion control plans for roadway projects that not only meet local regulations, but are effective in minimizing the discharge of sediment.

This webinar will be available live on Wednesday, Dec. 9th,  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.

While a sediment and erosion control (S&EC) plan may meet regulatory requirements, it’s useless if it is not effective and cannot be implemented by the contractor. Too often S&EC plans meet local regulatory requirements, but are not practical for the contractor to implement on a roadway project, which often creates noncompliant situations. Designers and reviewers need to incorporate their knowledge of sediment and erosion control methods to develop effective S&EC plans which meet regulatory requirements, are practical, and perform once implemented. Effective S&EC plans are those that contractors can implement knowing that designers and reviewers understand BMP limitations, provide sufficient information for timely installation, and take into account that roadway construction sites are dynamic.

Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rd ed.), this fifth module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series explores the issues in ineffective sediment and erosion control plans, and presents S&EC plan development guidelines to overcome these issues in roadway projects. Fifield and Wills present their innovative process of using separate drawings to create effective S&EC plans for roadways that are cost effective, logical to implement, and minimize non-compliant situations.

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

  • Understand the problems associated with complex S&EC plans.
  • Identify the need to do planning that results in practical development of S&EC plans.
  • Understand how communication is essential for implementing an effective S&EC plan.
  • Understand how to develop and review plans that are cost effective and practical to implement.
