This webinar will detail the various components and requirements to develop effective sediment basin designs. The webinar will provide an overview to “SEDspread”, a (FREE) user-friendly spreadsheet-based design tool for designers to appropriately size sediment basin parameters. The workbook allows users to input site specific parameters and constraints to determine: basin capacity and configuration, surface skimmer size and dewatering rate, auxiliary spillway design, and baffle configuration. The workbook includes a summary sheet that provides users with schematics of the designed basin, available as a supplement to facilitate effective communication between designers and contractors for constructing/installing the basin.
- Understand the various components and concepts that are used in the design of a sediment basin.
- Learn about a spreadsheet based tool that can be used to quickly and appropriately size sediment basins.
- Attain background into the mathematical relationships that are used in the SEDspread design workbook to design effective sediment basins.
