Is your sediment and erosion control plan meeting your performance goals? Join Jerald Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC, and Tina Wills, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the sixth installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series and the second part of our Effective Sediment & Erosion Control Plans for Roadway Projects mini-series, Calculating Performance Goals and Plan Effectiveness. Learn about calculating performance goals (PG) at major discharge points of a roadway project using the results of RUSLE2, as well how to calculate effectiveness (EFF) of sediment and erosion control plans before implementation.
This webinar will be available live on Wednesday, Dec. 16th, 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.
Effective roadway sediment and erosion control plans developed by designers and approved by regulatory agencies must meet specific performance goals (PG), but, all too often some performance goals cannot be achieved (e.g., discharge of sediment cannot occur) or remain idealistic (e.g., BMPs must remain functional for all storm events). Calculating erosion rates by RUSLE2 is becoming more commonplace due to the computer algorithms that better simulate vegetation establishment, rendering it an excellent tool to assess how road building activities affect a watershed and allows for calculating performance goals.
Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rd ed.), this sixth module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series develops a roadway project, and puts forth the process and calculations by which using the results of RUSLE2 designers and reviewers can calculate performance goals (PG) at major discharge points by assuming predevelopment discharge of sediment is to be maintained while construction activities occur. Additionally Fifield and Wills discuss how designers and reviewers can calculate effectiveness (EFF) of sediment and erosion control plans before implementation that strive to meet performance goals.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.
- Develop a sediment and erosion control plan for a roadway project.
- Understand of how to develop PG values at major discharge points using RUSLE2 results.
- Complete EFF calculations to demonstrate Performance Goals are being met.
- Understand tools necessary for designers and regulatory agencies to demonstrate S&EC plans are compliant before implementation.
