    Site Environmental Outcomes – Control, Influence or Merely Acceptance?

    Kel Sanson - CPESC, Senior Environmental Consultant, SEEC

    There are a large range of factors that impact on how a site manages the environmental side of business during a construction project. Regulatory attention, contractor culture, community influence/knowledge, and the technical knowledge/leadership capabilities/soft skills of on-ground environmental staff are the major contributors. Some of these factors are within our sphere of control, some within our sphere of influence, and others we will just need to accept.

    Context will be provided through a range of perspectives from previous work lives. These roles varied from a Contractor’s environmental advisor to an in-house asset manager/developer with a coal seam gas company, to the ‘dark side’ as a Regulator and finally as a consultant working on the client and/or contractor side.
    Which one of the factors has the greatest impact to site environmental outcomes? Which of these factors can we control, which ones can we influence and which ones do we need to accept? This presentation will seek to analyse and discuss each of the factors and the scale of their impact to site environmental outcomes.

    Best Practice Revegetation Using Hydraulically Applied Solutions – an Experienced Practitioners Perspective

    Michael Frankcombe - CPESC, National Technical Leader - Land, Water and Rehabilitation, EMM Consulting

    The fundamental rules of revegetation have not changed over time but the constraints of construction and mining landforms can make it challenging to implement to achieve the desired outcome. Fortunately now there are a multitude of different hydraulically applied revegetation and erosion control solutions that can provide quality revegetation outcomes on even the most challenging of sites. Unfortunately the authors of revegetation specifications commonly used in Australia do not understand or differentiate between different types of techniques and how or where they should be used. This is further compounded by the confusing marketing spin and names of various the products put forward by the product suppliers. This makes it difficult for the consumer to decide what product(s) to use and if those products meet the requirements of the specifications.

    This presentation breaks all down into easily understood industry standard terminology starting with hydro-seeding and finishing with hydraulically applied growth mediums. It details the fundamental steps of revegetation and demonstrates what techniques can be used to achieve the desired revegetation outcomes on even the most challenging sites.

    Upscaling Regenerative Agriculture Using Carbon Farming -
    a Solution to Soil Health, Water, Climate Change and Large Scale Land Management

    Khory Hancock- General Manager, Upscale Carbon

    Regenerative agriculture is a hot topic in today’s science and industry news, but what is it? What does it consist of? And is it really a solution to climate change?

    According to peer reviewed book ‘Project Drawdown’, regenerative agriculture is the top 11th solution out of 100 to reverse climate change. This presentation will go through the science behind the principles and thought processes behind regenerative systems, different livestock and crop management methods that can be applied to help store more carbon in your soil along with the many ecological benefits this brings.

    Regenerative agriculture can also be used as a methodology under the Australian Liberal Government’s Emission Reduction fund to generate Australian Carbon Credits through soil carbon and forest regeneration. This presentation will take the audience through the policy and industry frameworks that can help incentivise farmers away from conventional farming methods into more regenerative ways of managing land.

    Key points:

    • Regenerative principles explained;
    • Human-social element of management explained – mindset shift that is required and tools available to help;
    • Soil health improvements from peer reviewed agricultural studies on regenerative agriculture;
    • Natural sequence farming as an ESC management method;
    • Carbon sequestration potential in soil from regenerative agriculture methods;
    • Carbon farming industry (Carbon Farming Initiative, CFI) explained and regulation frameworks;
    • Potential payment from soil and forest carbon through Emissions Reduction Fund
    • Existing carbon projects in Australia; and
    • Future of carbon farming and regenerative agriculture in Australia and worldwide – how do we scale this up?

      Erosion and Sediment Control 101 – Back to Basics

      Stefano Rignanese

      Erosion is defined as movement and consequent displacement of soil particles due to agents like water, wind, ocean currents, ice by downward, down-slope movement in response to gravity or by living organisms. It is a natural process but, in many cases, it is increased by many factors, e.g. unmanaged construction activity of roads, railways and industrial areas. This presentation presents a general introduction to soil erosion and possible applications to mitigate this important natural process. It will be introduced a quick overview of EPA Rules and Regulations and the concept of Best Management Practice for erosion and sediment control.

      Urban Green Infrastructure: The Opportunities and Challenges in Design & Maintenance

      Chris Bogdan, National Business Development Manager - Urban Green Infrastructure

      Green infrastructure has become a buzz word in many cities large and small around the country - looking for opportunities to use rain gardens, bioretention and even permeable surfaces to collect and treat stormwater with the goal of protecting or improving water quality in downstream lakes/streams and waterbodies. While the science and performance of these types of practices are known – the subtleties and challenges in both design, installation and maintenance are evolving as cities take the leap to launch their own green infrastructure program – all coming to the table with different expectations, budgets, perspectives, and maintenance capabilities. This presentation will provide an overview of Ferguson’s experience playing a support role in large city green infrastructure programs such as Philadelphia, and New York and Pittsburgh and a summary of typical green practices and the growing need for collaboration throughout the course of these programs to achieve the desired outcomes.

    Exploring Sediment Control During Inclement Weather Events

    Available On-Demand

    In this on-demand webinar, presented by Storm Water Solutions and the International Erosion Control Association (IECA), participants will gain an understanding of how different modes of sediment control affect the discharge commitments and role of related weather impacts. Additionally, recognize how sediment control BMPs may fail to deliver permit requirements unless upgraded and amended as the work changes, and finally, integrate staged sediment control based on function into the work.

    image

    Sediment control BMPs that are inundated or overwhelmed by flood waters are no longer functional. Assuming the contactor has demobilized pollutant generating activities out of the expected floodplain, maintaining functional sediment control means mobilizing sediment control BMPs above the rising waters to new land/water boundary where exposed soil remains. The diagram illustrates what this might look like, and for potential changes in flood elevations. Note while flotation containment booms are necessary for short-term work in water and recoverable pollutants, they are not considered sediment perimeter control as this assumes the receiving water is the sediment trap. Most flotation containment booms are removed prior to the flooding due to performance limits to retain in-place during high river flow and damaging floating debris events.

    Circular Economy – What is it and how does it impact our industry?
    Shonelle Gleeson-Willey, MEnMgmt, Director, Moss Environmental Pty Ltd.

    Living systems have been around for a few billion years and will be around for a lot longer. The natural world needs no waste dump or landfill site, instead material flows where one species waste is another’s food. Energy is provided by the sun, things grow and die and the nutrients are returned to the soil. This is the inspiration for a circular economy. As humans we have adopted a linear approach where we take, make, and then dispose. In this presentation we will look into how our waste can build capital rather than reduce it, using examples from the ESC industry, in essence how do we take what we currently have and move towards a true circular economy?


    Managing Water Discharge from Construction Sites
    Andrew Earles, Ph.D., P.E., CPESC & Jennifer Keyes, CPESC, Wright Water Engineers, Inc.

    Stormwater runoff from construction sites has high potential for water quality impacts due to the accelerated erosion and sediment transport that occurs when a site is disturbed. Potential adverse effects from construction activities are managed through implementation of stormwater control measures (CMs) to reduce erosion, trap sediments, and prevent pollution through site management activities. The presenters will discuss the array of available CMs and share experiences with which practices are most effective and which ones can be problematic. When projects involve work in or near waterways or construction dewatering, one of the most important aspects of an effective stormwater management plan is a water management plan that describes how temporary measures such as diversions, stream crossings, and CMs adjacent to waterways are sized and how they will be implemented and maintained. The presenters will share examples of effective and ineffective water management approaches. Attendees will come away from this webinar with an enhanced understanding of stormwater CMs for erosion control, sediment management, and working in and near waterways and an understanding of the regulatory framework for construction site management in the U.S.

    The Compliance Value of Early BMPs and Stabilization
    Jonathan Dearth and Don Elly, Allan Myers

    Planning to implement critical BMPs early in your project, combined with prompt stabilization of areas of disturbance, is the single most effective approach to minimize sediment leaving your site limits of disturbance. This course reviews typical preconstruction/ predevelopment conditions, initial BMP installation and stabilization measures, and the importance of erosion & sediment control. Users will learn about full utilization of E&S plans, specifications for BMPs and stabilization, and time of year scenarios for temporary and permanent seeding. Best practices for installation, stabilization, and maintenance will also be reviewed. This course comes with a lifetime guarantee that using these principals will drive stormwater compliance on your projects from good to great!

    Material presented during this webinar series is intended to be non-state specific and non-proprietary in nature.  Users are advised to seek their federal, state and local level regulations that pertain to Erosion and Sediment Control as well as Stormwater compliance.
