FHWA-NHI-142054 - Design and Implementation of Erosion and Sediment Control
This training is the result of a joint effort between the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and reflects the agencies' commitment to providing education and training on planning, design, implementation, enforcement, inspection, and maintenance strategies to control erosion and sediment on highway construction projects. The agencies also are committed to ensuring that regulatory issues are addressed accurately and uniformly. Each discipline involved in a highway construction project has a different set of priorities. Reflecting the National Highway Institute's (NHI) commitment to learner-centered training, the course offers participants opportunities for discussion and joint problem solving, enabling participants to gain information about the roles and responsibilities of other team members.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Describe the components of an erosion and sediment control (ESC) plan
List the sources of information for the ESC plan
Identify management practices and related measures that are appropriate for typical situations and for a case example
List typical construction and inspection problems. Describe both suitable prevention strategies and remedies for failures
Link Federal and State environmental regulations to the components of the ESC plan
The training targets Federal, State, and local highway design, construction, inspection, and maintenance staff. In addition, environmental agency representatives, as well as consultants and members of the construction industry, are encouraged to attend to provide their perspectives, learn each other's responsibilities, and explore an array of options to control erosion and sedimentation.
