Are your containment (a.k.a., sediment basins/traps) systems effective? Join Jerald Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CPESC, CISEC and Tina Wills, PE, CISEC, CPESC for the third installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series, Designing Effective Sediment Containment Systems for Roadway Projects, exploring a scientific and engineering assessment of the parameters necessary to capture suspended particles while flood flows are discharging from a containment system on a roadway project.
The role of any sediment containment system (SCS) is to allow for the settlement of soil particles that are suspended in runoff waters. While SCSs are the only effective method for removing sediment from runoff waters, in order to be effective in protecting the environment, they must be able to capture design size particles during flood flow conditions.
This webinar will be available live on Wednesday, Nov. 24th, 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 (3rd ed.), this third module of our Sediment and Erosion Control for Roadway Projects Master Class Series presents a scientific and engineering assessment of parameters necessary to capture design size particles while flood flows are discharging from a containment system. Fifield and Wills demonstrate that while effectiveness of an SCS is dependent more upon internal flow velocities and flow distances, the need to consider length-width ratios are applicable to roadway projects. Additionally, Fifield and Wills present an assessment of “Flow-Through Systems” to capture polymer treated sediments demonstrating how a small SCS can have a high rate of effectiveness during flood flow events.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.
- Understand the types of SCSs and effective outlet structures.
- Understand why designers and reviewers must develop SCS for design flood flow events.
- Apply scientific and engineering methods on developing parameters.
- Understand how the use of polymers can increase the effectiveness of an SCS.
