This online course will highlight treatment technologies that can be implemented in the construction industry to manage turbidity from dewatering operations. Dewatering methods are briefly introduced; however, the course focuses on best available technologies to treat and polish pumped effluent.  Participants will be exposed to a decision matrix that assists in identifying the appropriate treatment for a site specific operation.  Upon selection of the treatment, basic design elements are presented for consideration.  The webinar targets a broad based audience who can use the information provided as a foundation to then independently research a specific treatment technology in more detail.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Develop an understanding of control technology categories and their associated configurations and general capabilities.
  2. Develop an understanding of control technology selection steps required for the pollutant being targeted for treatment.
  3. Develop an understanding of the basic design parameters for control technologies.
  4. Develop an understanding of the treatment limitations, implementation considerations, and inspection and maintenance needs for control technologies.
  5. Name chemical treatment systems used for managing sediment and turbidity.

Ted Sherrod, PE, CPESC, CPSWQ, CM

Ted M. Sherrod is a Principal Environmental Engineer with AECOM with key responsibilities involving management of construction stormwater and post construction stormwater programs, design of stormwater control measures and training materials, and development of stormwater management plans for private and public sector clients. Ted retired with 30 years of service with the North Carolina Department of Transportation's (NCDOT) Roadside Environmental Unit and as a Transportation Engineering Manager for the Field Operations Section in Raleigh. Ted was tasked with implementing the Department's Erosion and Sedimentation/Stormwater (E&SC/SW) program for linear and vertical construction. His roles involved design and field implementation of E&SC/SW for roadway and bridge construction projects, supervising 15 field engineers and technicians. Ted also oversaw the development of an E&SC/SW training and certification program for over 4000 engineers, consultants, contractors, and transportation technicians involving inspection, site management, and design. Ted has experience in training oil and gas clients for implementation of RAPPS, as well all E&SC management for construction of landfills for coal combustion residuals and repair of coal ash impoundments for power industry clients.
