Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control: Best Practices and Low Impact Solutions

Often construction-phase and post-construction stormwater management are separate worlds (different permits, different plans, different practices, etc.); however, in terms of hydrology, water quality and the ultimate success or failure of post-construction practices, they are closely related. This webinar will briefly review stormwater regulations for construction and post-construction and will explain how hydrology is a unifying theme.  The webinar will include state-of-the-practice details for common LID and GI practices and will focus on details that are important to pay attention to during construction for successful stormwater quality management for the long term.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how construction phase stormwater management relates to the ultimate success or failure of post-construction practices.
  2. Understand peak flow rate, volume and runoff frequency changes due to development of impervious surfaces and how to mitigate.
  3. Learn about common practices for Low Impact Development (LID) and Green Infrastructure (GI) and how construction activities, methods and details affect performance.
