Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control Best Management Practices - Virtual Classroom

Course Description

The workshop will focus on common erosion prevention and sediment control BMPs associated with linear projects, including primarily roadway and utility infrastructure work, addressing the MS4 permit’s MCM Construction Measures BMPs.

Focus will be given to three areas:
1. Regulatory context under EPA’s NPDES Construction General Permit, including the requirements of the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (“SWPPP”), and a basic review of erosion and sedimentation processes.
2. Types of information ordinarily included in the SWPPP, including a discussion of BMP selection and site management, engineering design considerations, importance of understanding stormwater flows, and construction sequencing and phasing.
3. Culminate with interactive exercises and a review of lessons learned from “real-world” project examples. Ideally, the lessons learned from these case studies can be applied to future situations and result in the implementation of better overall erosion prevention and sediment control practices.

Target Audience

Local engineering and public works officials, environmental consultants and engineers, conservation commissioners and agents, and site contractors.
