    Presented by: Allen Bullock

    Numerous challenges are associated with establishment, maintenance, restoration and repair of wetland and stream systems. Some of these include; creation of low-permeable barriers to contain water, repair of leaking dikes or berms (i.e. due to animal damage) and establishment of sub-aquatic vegetation in shall water environment (i.e. for emergent wetland species). Solutions to many of these challenges can be provided through the use of a Composite Bentonite Aggregate (CBA). This is an innovative and unique manufactured product widely applied for sealing civil and geotechnical infrastructure applications to mitigate seepage.  Applications used throughout the country include sealing around pipelines as an anti-seep collar or trench dam and for repair of leaking ponds or dams. Using a composite particle technology approach, CBA utilizes ordinary aggregate coated with a high swelling sodium bentonite clay to create a finished product that is a stable dry particle which can be simply and rapidly placed in both upland and subaqueous environments.   When hydrated in freshwater conditions, the bentonite swells and fills the void space of the aggregate, resulting in a self-compacted impervious mass with hydraulic conductivity of 1x10-7 cm/sec or lower.  The natural components of the CBA resist degradation, and the plastic nature of the hydrated product withstands damage from freeze-thaw cycles and seismic forces.   For wetland submergent restoration applications CBA technology has been adapted to address the challenges of placing seeds in the water.   This technology involves binding select wetland specie seeds within the clay matrix and provides an alternative to traditional means of plant propagation in wetland/aquatic settings that tend to be very costly and labor intensive. With a higher weight and specific gravity, utilizing CBA technology as a deployment platform for seeding is desirable especially when confronted with habitats prone to fluctuating water levels.   Practical applications of CBA will be shown, along with relevant examples of project performance of which erosion controls are effective in preventing sediment runoff, land users across various industries will be better equipped to effectively manage their sites and prevent sediment-laden water entering our waterways. 

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the properties of Composite Bentonite Aggregate (CBA), and its relevance to civil and geotechnical applications.
    • Learn about the CBA geotechnical properties for enhanced performance.
    • Become familiar with basic geotechnical applications in which CBA can be an ideal solution.
    • Explore examples of successful installations of CBA for geotechnical applications.

    Since 2001, GTC has used “shredded” wood material generated from tree clearing activities to immediately stabilize transmission line rights of way. The shredded wood material degrades in a mosaic pattern which extends protection from erosion and sedimentation as vegetation re-establishes.

    Shredded Wood Material for Rights of Way Stabilization

    A Case Study – Georgia Transmission Corporation

    On-Demand

    image

    Presented by: Lauren Atteberry

    Georgia Transmission Corporation (GTC) is an electric transmission cooperative that builds and maintains overhead  high voltage transmission lines and substations.   GTC builds approximately 30 miles of new transmission lines and 10 substations per year.  These numbers are projected to more than double over the next several years. As such, GTC has a robust erosion and sediment control program to  ensure compliance with the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System Stormwater Construction Permit that is managed by the State of Georgia.  Since 2001, GTC has used “shredded” wood material generated from tree clearing activities to immediately stabilize transmission line rights of way.  An added benefit to this practice is that it complements future ROW vegetation management maintenance programs which are required to prevent electrical outages due to conflicts with canopy tree species.    A case study was conducted in 2012 to document the benefits of using this technique for  both short term and long term stabilization of ROWs.    The practice involves the shredding of wood material generated by project tree clearing that is then applied to areas where construction related land disturbance has occurred.  This practice is only used on 0-33% slopes at a depth of 4-6 inches. Case study results indicate that shredded wood material provides immediate soil stabilization.  The shredded wood material degrades in a mosaic pattern which extends protection from erosion and sedimentation as vegetation re-establishes over the following years.  Other benefits of this practice include that it retains onsite topsoil, encourages re-establishment of vegetation that already naturally occurs in the area, eliminates wood waste from landfills, reduces frequency of ROW inspections and has reduced landowner complaints during construction.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Georgia integrated Transmission System & Powerline Construction Overview
    • GTC Clearing Specifications & Operations
    • Case Study discussing benefits of shredded wood material for final stabilization of the ROW

    image

    Presented by: Dr Luke Verstraten

    In any effective Erosion and Sediment Control strategy, primary erosion control should be a key focus. Erosion and sediment controls are beneficial for construction sites impacted by increases in high intensity rainfall events to reduce the burden on sediment basins. It is becoming common practice to increase design rainfall intensities to account for climate change making a focus on erosion control even more crucial. Substantial improvements to water quality can be achieved with erosion and sediment controls, with some erosion controls limiting TSS concentrations to well below the requirements of legislation under simulated high-intensity rainfall conditions. Effective erosion control methods help construction site policy makers, designers and erosion control professionals achieve the objectives for site compliance. By gaining an understanding of which erosion controls are effective in preventing sediment runoff, land users across various industries will be better equipped to effectively manage their sites and prevent sediment-laden water entering our waterways.

    Presented by: Gordon Keller, PE, GE & Mark Weinhold, PE

    Billions of dollars in damage have been sustained and many lives lost from climate-related storms and fires in recent years. The objective of this webinar is to present some of the road and infrastructure measures that can reasonably be implemented to reduce the vulnerability or likelihood of damage from
    natural disasters. Current road maintenance and attention to thorough drainage detail are critical to avoid concentration of water on roads and prevent damage. Properly designed culverts with conservative capacity and measures to prevent plugging or stream diversion are needed. Stream simulation designed culverts that match natural channel characteristics offer resilience against storms. Various slope stabilization and erosion control measures can be particularly useful to add resilience to roads and prevent landslides, debris flows, and other types of storm damage.

    Flocculants are powerful tools that have been used for decades to control erosion, stabilize soil, and remove harmful contaminants from water. Flocculant treatments can meet very low discharge limits, allowing sites to stay in compliance, meet regulations and improve stormwater quality and clarity. Applied Polymer Systems introduced flocculants to the erosion and stormwater industries in the 1990s, drawing from decades of research and use in mining effluent treatment. Anionic polyacrylamide is the most widely accepted and commonly used flocculant due to being both safe for aquatic life, and highly effective.

    [On Demand] LET'S TALK FLOC: Three Part Series


    A flocculant webinar from the company that brought
    flocculant (Floc) Logs and Polymer Enhanced BMPs to the industry 

    Series Presenters: Seva Bray, Vice President; Kyla Wood, Head of Research and Development & Eddie Snell, Technical Specialist - Applied Polymer Systems

    Flocculants are powerful tools that have been used for decades to control erosion, stabilize soil, and remove harmful contaminants from water. Flocculant treatments can meet very low discharge limits, allowing sites to stay in compliance, meet regulations and improve stormwater quality and clarity.  Applied Polymer Systems introduced flocculants to the erosion and stormwater industries in the 1990s, drawing from decades of research and use in mining effluent treatment. Anionic polyacrylamide is the most widely accepted and commonly used flocculant due to being both safe for aquatic life, and highly effective.

    PAM use is rapidly expanding across the US and world thanks to its safety for environmental applications and effectiveness at targeting and removing difficult and common pollutants like clay, sediments, and metals. In our Let’s Talk Floc Part 1 webinar we detailed the movement and growth of PAM use for erosion and sediment control from its introduction in the 1990s to its widespread and growing adoption in the US today. We also spoke about the important factors that influence how we use flocculants safely and effectively. In Let’s Talk Floc Part 2, we will build on this important information and focus on case studies and examples of how PAMs were, and currently are being utilized to successfully manage erosion, sediment, metals, and stormwater on multiple projects across the United States and Canada. Join Applied Polymer Systems, the company who brought flocculant technologies to this industry 25 years ago, in the second part of our two series Let’s Talk Floc webinar, as we cover how to effectively, safely, and efficiently use flocculants in the field to meet stormwater and erosion and sediment control goals and requirements.

    Thanks to years of education and concerted effort by universities, companies, and organizations like the IECA, flocculant use has evolved from sparse use of what many deemed mysterious “fairy dust”, to widespread adoption and a push towards standardized flocculant training, use and application. With many states recently adopting, preparing to adopt, or considering adopting anionic polyacrylamide into their toolboxes (i.e. pre-approved flocculant lists, QPLs/APLS, or erosion control and stormwater manuals) interest in flocculants and demand for training and information has reached levels never seen before in our industry.  Despite expanded use and interest, confusion and questions still exist, and education is needed to ensure flocculants are used safely and effectively. Join Applied Polymer Systems, the company who brought flocculant technologies to this industry 25 years ago, as we cover how to effectively, safely, and efficiently use flocculants to enhance traditional best management practices to meet stormwater and erosion and sediment control goals and requirements.

    In the first parts of our Let’s Talk Floc webinar series we provided participants a foundation on how to select safe and effective flocculants and polyacrylamides and introduced their many uses for improving erosion and sediment control and stormwater quality. In the second part of this series we built on this information and focused on completed projects including robust dewatering and mainstream theme park applications to provide examples of how PAMs were, and currently are being utilized to successfully manage erosion, sediment, and water clarification. In our third and final Let’s Talk Floc Webinar we will use this foundation and apply the acquired skills and knowledge to work through projects that have a need for flocculant use from start to finish. Participants who have not yet had the opportunity to view Let’s Talk Floc 1 or 2, but have a basic understanding of how polymer flocculants work, and their various E&SC and stormwater applications can still benefit from this upcoming presentation and learn the process of proper flocculant planning and use. This interactive webinar will use example sites and give an opportunity for participant participation to work through the flocculant process including planning, regulations, sampling for product matching and selection, application, troubleshooting, maintenance, and disposal.

    Part One Learning Objectives:

    1. Understanding the basics of flocculant technologies and how to select safe and effective flocculants for treatment systems
    2. Understand what anionic polyacrylamide is, how it works, and why it is the standard flocculant used for erosion and sediment control and stormwater treatment in the industry
    3. Gain a basic knowledge and understanding of the steps needed to apply, maintain, and troubleshoot flocculants in field applications
    4. Recognize how traditional BMPs may be enhanced using anionic PAM to improve sediment control and water treatment 

    Part Two Learning Objectives: 

    1. Review how to select appropriate flocculants for projects based on specific project goals and site characteristics. 
    2. Learn components needed to plan and implement effective PAM treatments for Erosion and Sediment Control and Stormwater Management. 
    3. Understand common management and use requirements for PAM applications through real world examples and case studies of PAM treatments.

    The Bruce Highway, Cairns Southern Access Corridor (Stage 3) - Edmonton to Gordonvale Project (E2G) is located south of Cairns in Far North Queensland.

    It marks a significant advancement in infrastructure, focusing on the duplication of a 10.5 kilometre stretch of the Bruce Highway and realignment and upgrade of 4.7 kilometres of the Queensland Rail North Coast Line. Accompanying these primary objectives is the construction of new local roads, pedestrian and rail bridges.

    Situated in a floodplain region, E2G contended with a unique set of environmental challenges - from constructing multiple bridges and managing tropical soils to grappling with unpredictable weather.

    E2G's unique approach to implementing innovative solutions for environmental management, while weathering three tropical wet seasons and two tropical cyclones, without diminishing their commitment to erosion and sediment control performance will be discussed in this presentation.  Hear how they adopted innovative technologies, utilising drones for site mapping and erosion and sediment control evaluations, initiated trials for new erosion and sediment control products, and championed strategies that intertwined sustainability goals with erosion and sediment control planning.

    NIWA Weather Forecasting – A New Zealand First in the Construction Industry

    Presented by: Stephanie Kirk

    image

    Everything we do in the erosion and sediment control space is driven by the weather. Is it going to rain today, will that cyclone really end up hitting our site, do we need to install additional measures to help prepare? We focus on continually improving erosion and sediment control device design, investing in the latest water quality technology, applying chemical flocculants, and many more. When the weather governs so much of our world, why are most contractors not going above and beyond to invest in quality weather forecasting software?

    This presentation will compare the accuracy of publicly available weather forecasting sites when compared with a top-tier weather forecasting provider and how investing in quality forecasting software can help your site save time and money and help you prepare more accurately for weather events.
