      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.

    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.


    Challenges and Opportunities of Healthy Soil Management
    Alistair Mowat, Eurofins Food & Water Testing New Zealand

    Calling all stormwater professionals – envision the future of stormwater compliance as a cooperative team effort involving contractors, owners, agencies, and consultants to promote practical stormwater management programs on construction sites. This panel presentation will demonstrate how stormwater compliance can be accomplished on any construction site by incorporating a few inexpensive management strategies and organizational tools. Our panel, consisting of agency inspectors, and private sector stormwater consultants will demonstrate how to incorporate the different perspectives into an agency friendly, stormwater management program that is easy to implement and maintain; ensuring the stormwater management program runs smoothly throughout the life of a project.

    Program Learning Objectives– To adopt a teamwork approach to stormwater management on your site to foster a smooth and concerted relationship between all parties involved. The panel discusses the concepts below to accomplish this productive goal:
  • Incorporate stormwater management from pre-planning through post-construction.
  • Plan and budget for the project SWPPP requirements during the pre-construction process.
  • Learn how to focus BMP strategies on the big-ticket items that attract negative enforcement attention.
  • Creating an organized and comprehensive onsite stormwater compliance center for ease of document management and to demonstrate knowledge of the required document maintenance.

In addition, we will be discussing communication do’s and don’ts between agency inspectors and contractors onsite, while posing questions to the audience and getting feedback from the different panel members on how to promote positive communication and relationships.

    Pre-Mine Analysis and Soil Reconstruction Protocols to Optimize Reclamation Success
    W. Lee Daniels - Thomas B. Hutcheson Professor of Environmental Soil Science, Virginia Tech

    Stabilization and revegetation of mining sites is frequently limited by adverse mine soil chemical and physical properties.  This seminar will cover essential pre-mining analyses, active mine operating procedures, and soil landform reconstruction protocols that are essential to ensure revegetation success and protect local water quality. Examples will include Appalachian coal mines returned to hayland/pasture and native forests, revegetation of highly acidic coal processing wastes, and return of Coastal Plain mineral sands (Ti and Zr) mines to productive row cropping systems.

    Techniques for Interim Stabilization of Mine Spoils until Permanent Revegetation can be Achieved
    Michael Frankcombe - National Technical Leader Land, Water and Rehabilitation

    The design of mining waste landforms rarely considers erosional stability landforms in the interim period landform shaping top soiling and final revegetation. The lack of suitable erosion protection during this time can result in the loss of valuable topsoil, expensive rework and offsite pollution. This presentation discusses a range of temporary and permanent stabilization techniques used in Australia to mitigate this risk.

    Wasteland to Wetland: The Urunga Antimony Processing Plant Remediation
    Clayton Colmer - New South Wales' Soil Conservation Service

    In the early 1970’s, a mining company established a processing facility on the foreshore of a freshwater wetland near the coastal village of Urunga, NSW. The facility known and the Antimony Processing Plant, crushed and leached antimony and gold from stibnite ore sourced from Wild Cattle Creek 2 hours truck haul away. The tailings were deposited in the wetland with little scrutiny which was common during this period of mining history. Over the next 40 years, the tailings leached antimony, arsenic, mercury, lead and processing agents like cyanide and cresylic acid into the paperbark forested wetland resulting in a 4 ha impacted area of dead trees and contaminated sediments. Leached contaminants and sediments also made their way through the wetland into the Urunga Lagoon estuary and Kalang River, a popular spot for fishing and swimming for tourists and children. The NSW government eventually applied a remediation order to the site and the $10M clean-up process began in 2015, taking 2 years to complete. The project was highly challenging and extremely constrained environmentally, and hence required much innovation and technology to achieve the successful long term containment of 36,400 tonnes of contaminated material without adverse impact to the environment and the community. The site has been returned to the public as a parkland with an iconic elevated boardwalk spanning the wetland and the reestablishment of several endangered ecological communities. It won the construction industries prestigious ‘Earth Award’ in 2017 at the state level.

    A Blueprint of Rehabilitating Success
    Rob Loch, BAgrSc, BA, PhD, CPSS - Principal Consultant, Landloch Pty Ltd

    Rob Loch has been involved in mine rehabilitation assessment and design both across Australia and internationally since the late 1980’s. His presentation will focus on the key principles for design of successful rehabilitation across a wide range of material properties and environments, and will provide several case studies of the successful application of a soundly-based scientific approach to achieve practical and sustainable outcomes. A key message is that even when the same planning process is followed, the designs applied will (and should) vary widely.
