Pictures and videos will help tell the story and share experiences with the audience. With proper planning and preparation, it is difficult, but not impossible to install systems in the winter. But should you?
Dam or Filter – What’s the Difference When it Comes to Sediment Control?
Recorded 06/08/2020
Recorded 06/08/2020 Sediment control solutions in the best management practice (BMP) toolbox are plentiful today. Both natural and manufactured options exist. Selecting the proper solution for a project can be challenging at times because there are so many choices. One key factor of sediment control products is whether or not they allow stormwater through them. Sediment control products can be separated as damming and filtering products. Filtering products are defined as those with a flow rate of ≥35 GPM/ft2 according to ASTM D5141. Damming products are designed with a flow rate of < 35 GPM/ft2. Matrix density is also an important factor to consider that is related to the flow rate of the sediment control solutions. Damming and filtering products react differently during hydraulic events. As a result, the products have their limitations and are not interchangeable. Benefits of each type of sediment control products will be discussed along with performance differences in various applications.
Developing a Multi-use Restoration Plan for Midwest Streams
Recorded 07/28/2020
Recorded 07/28/2020 Rivers provide many benefits and values for Midwest communities including water for everyday use, recreation, economic development and natural habitat for wildlife and quality of life opportunities. This presentation presents a case study in which Polk County Conservation Board staff and JEO scientists and engineers partnered to develop a stream and wetland restoration plan that restored over two miles of stream with severe bank instability issues and reconnected the floodplain by developing 52 acres of wetlands and aquatic habitat. JEO staff utilized the Iowa River Restoration Toolbox in conjunction with other environmental assessment methodologies to provide an ecological restoration design that would preserve and enhance a high-quality aquatic ecosystem. The presentation highlights the assessment methodologies utilized to determine the restoration techniques that would best address the site’s biological, geomorphic, and water quality issues. Construction will begin in August 2020 and monitoring of the restoration activities will occur over the next ten years.
Establishing Native Plants for Stormwater Compliance: From Paper to Plants
Recorded 07/28/2020
Recorded 07/28/2020 Establishing a roadside native prairie can be challenging with sites varying from one acre to several hundred acres. One of the challenges of using native grasses and wildflowers in construction projects that require a NPDES Permit is the lag time it takes to reach 70% permanent vegetative cover. This workshop will detail how we have developed and established native grass and wildflowers along linear transportation projects to minimize the lag time between the end of soil disturbing activities and submitting the Notice of Discontinuation. This presentation will help provide an understanding of developing site specific native seed mixes that allowed the permittees to submit their Notice of Discontinuation when soil disturbing activities were completed verses having to wait several months or years to submit the Notice of Discontinuation while the native grasses and wildflowers developed to reach the 70% permanent vegetative threshold. The presentation will focus on site selection and preparation, seed selection, planting and short term management techniques to ensure rapid growth of your native plantings.

Plastic Erosion Control Blankets and Wildlife Don't Mesh
Recorded 07/30/2020
Recorded 07/30/2020 Plastic mesh Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs) are commonly used in the construction industry as a cost-effective method of soil protection from erosion forces while vegetation is establishing. However, concern has been increasing among wildlife professionals and engineers about issues with wildlife entanglement; particularly snakes, birds, and other small fauna. Another concern with the synthetic plastic materials in these ECBs is their contribution to the growing issue of plastic pollution in the environment. Plastic ECBs are designed to degrade into fragments with time via additives or when exposed to sunlight. This fragmentation of plastic ECBs contributes to microplastic pollution on land and in our waterbodies where it can be ingested by fish, wildlife, and people. Some states have recently banned the use of plastic ECBs in construction due to these concerns and opted instead for alternative biodegradable materials and methods to plastic ECBs. This discussion will provide an overview of the environmental impacts of plastic ECBs and alternative erosion control materials and methods to consider.

Ultra-Urban Ecosystem Restoration - Chicago's Northerly Island
Recorded 07/30/2020
Recorded 07/30/2020 The Northerly Island Ecosystem Restoration Project is an undertaking by the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Chicago Park District to develop an eco-park in the heart of Downtown Chicago. Northerly Island is a historic structure located amongst Chicago’s Museum Campus including Soldier Field, the Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, and Burnham Harbor. Northerly Island once housed Meigs Field as part of Chicago’s The project involves converting a 40 acre portion of the south half of the park made up of turf grass and limited native plantings to a backwater marsh surrounded by savanna hills and diverse native prairie.
Using Pre-vegetated Blankets to Achieve Instant Results
Recorded 07/30/2020
Recorded 07/30/2020 What are Pre-vegetated Blankets? Pre-vegetated blankets provide all the components of a traditional erosion control blanket with the added benefit of vegetative cover. All blankets are grown to specification (typically 4 to 6 week lead time) from pure live seed, Department of Transportation (DOT) approved seed mixes, and native seed mixes. Pre-vegetated blankets work in a variety of projects such as ditch lines, drainage channels, roadsides, stormwater management areas, green roof installations, steep slopes, shorelines, streambanks, wetland restorations, wood preservation, prairies, bioretention facilities, rain gardens, golf courses, athletic fields and more. Greenline's Pre-vegetated blankets have been used in various projects such as the following: 1. Private residence, Wisconsin Dells, WI area - Steep slopes often present challenges when it comes to re-vegetation by being difficult to negotiate, unstable and dry. Pre-vegetated blanket minimizes disturbance while maximizing erosion control through the use of live vegetation. 2. WI DOT, Middleton, WI - Each crop is custom grown to specification. This commercial DOT project started with empty trays that became overflowing trays of vegetation at the time of shipment. 3. Municipality, Fontana, WI - Blankets can be grown to meet the needs of any site. The banks of this drainage stream were lined with pre-vegetated blanket seeded for different flow rates.

Biotic Soil Technology for Sustainable Erosion Control and Revegetation
Recorded 07/30/2020
Recorded 07/30/2020 One vexing issue facing successful restoration of disturbed sites is lack of available topsoil to create viable environments for establishing sustainable vegetation. In the absence of adequate sources of topsoil, new techniques have been developed to treat and revive depleted soils to render them more capable of accelerating and sustaining vegetative growth. Essentially, on-site soils can be "engineered" to improve their physical and biological properties.
Case Studies and Methodology of Erosion Prevention and Mitigation by Engineering the Natural Stormwater Process of Infiltration
Recorded 07/30/2020
Recorded 07/30/2020 Infiltronics Environmental was founded in 2014 to develop and commercialize a stormwater management device patented by Kathleen Trauth, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Missouri. Insufficient stormwater management can be a catalyst for erosion. Over time, it has also been observed that some methods of stormwater management are not as effective at avoiding erosion as initially believed. Stormwater management basins are an example. These function by holding and slowly releasing stormwater runoff collected from a developed site. Although they reduce the peak discharge and help with water quality concerns, because they are releasing a concentrated volume of water through a pipe into a stream, they can still create erosion and reduce water quality. Because of the shortcomings with many common stormwater management methods, regarding erosion prevention and mitigation, new management methods are needed. One way to manage stormwater in a way to reduce runoff and erosion is to mimic natural processes, such as infiltration.

Land Disturbance Inspections for the Regulator
Recorded 07/27/2020
Recorded 07/27/2020 The presentation is intended to provide the erosion and sediment control inspector with insights of what to look for while conducting an inspection of a land disturbance site’s best management practices (BMPs). The presentation goes through what is needed for an inspection and the inspection process based on the EPA 2017 Construction General Permit (CGP) and EPA CGP Fact Sheet. Most local permit requirements are based on the CGP, so the inspection points should easily be applied to your local permitted site inspections. The presentation will outline what documentation is needed at the construction site and what should be documented in the inspection report. Photos will be used to show how BMPs have failed and why they failed.
Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District: 30 Years of Overflow Removal
Recorded 07/27/2020
Recorded 07/27/2020 The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) is a municipal corporation formed in 1954 under a provision of the Missouri State Constitution. MSD provides wastewater collection and treatment as well as stormwater management to a 535 square mile service area consisting of the City of St. Louis and about 90% of St. Louis County. MSD treats approximately 350 MGD of wastewater and with just under 10,000 miles of sewers has the 4th largest sewer system in the country. In August 2011, MSD signed a $4.7 billion Consent Decree to address sewer system overflows. This consent decree is currently scheduled to expire in 2039.
Salt vs Chloride: How Divergent Ideas and Approaches to Snow and Ice Removal Material Influence and Vary Policy and Practice
Recorded 07/30/2020
Recorded 07/30/2020 This study compares perspectives on the topic of freshwater salinization across various public infrastructure management agencies in Midwestern U.S. states. A series of in-depth interviews conducted in 2018 elucidate divergent management strategies, personal opinions, and levels of regulation that define operational approaches to mitigate environmental effects. While “salt” is widely considered a valuable tool for snow and ice removal, “chloride” is considered by others to be a pollutant of concern. These divergent attitudes toward the same material influence a dynamic decision-making system across political and jurisdictional boundaries. Regulation currently plays a role in agency operations, albeit inconsistently. Existing laws emphasize drinking water protection, and account for both household and industrial chloride sources. An ion by any other name, chloride is a commodity generating billions of dollars for material suppliers throughout North America. Industry can play a significant role in solving what may ultimately become one of the most challenging water quality problems of the 21st Century.

The presentation will cover an overview of the history and regulations leading to utilization of Stormwater Treatment Systems in the area; diving into more detail on what Stormwater Treatment BMPs are, how they are constructed, how they work, how they can fail, and why maintenance is critical to extending their useful life. Additional information will be provided on what BMP owners can begin to expect on the cost of providing routine maintenance, non-routine maintenance, or the repairs that stem from providing no maintenance at all.
TMDL ARAP Development and Implementation – A Diet and Exercise Plan for Impaired Waters
Recorded 07/28/2020
Recorded 07/28/2020 Coldwater Creek, Creve Coeur Creek, Fishpot Creek, and Watkins Creek appeared on Missouri’s Section 303(d) list of impaired waters for elevated concentrations of Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria. In-stream concentrations of E. coli in these waters were found to exceed Missouri’s water quality criterion for their designated use of Whole Body Contact Recreation Category B. These waters remained on Missouri’s Section 303d list of impaired waters for E. coli until July 13, 2016, when the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) approved their bacteria Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) developed by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR). As required by the Federal Clean Water Pollution Control Act, MDNR issues the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD), St. Louis County, and 59 St. Louis County municipalities a general operating permit to discharge authorized stormwater from the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) servicing the Plan Area to waters of the state. The most recent MS4 permit was issued on December 14, 2016 and requires regulated MS4s identified in a TMDL with an applicable Wasteload Allocation (WLA) to implement steps toward the attainment of the applicable WLA in accordance with 40 CFR 122.44(k)(2) and (3). In this case, MSD and its co-permittees were required to develop Assumptions and Requirement Attainment Plans (ARAPs) to address applicable assumptions and requirements of approved TMDLs. ARAPs for Coldwater Creek, Creve Coeur Creek, Fishpot Creek, and Watkins Creek were approved by MDNR on August 15, 2019, and are the first to be approved in the State of Missouri which address bacteria TMDL. This work will provide an overview of the strategies that will be implemented through the ARAPs, as well as a look at the factors and assumptions that were considered and used in their development. Key activities that are being used to target bacteria impairments include the current Stormwater Management Plan, MSD Project Clear efforts, and new ARAP specific BMPs that capitalize on the existing means and capabilities of MSD and the MS4 co-permittees.
The Evolution of TRM Technology: Hybrid Turf Instant Armoring Mats
Recorded 07/30/2020
Recorded 07/30/2020 Climate change is ushering in more frequent, higher intensity storm events, subjecting drainage channels, streams, riverbanks, and shorelines to greater flow discharges and erosive forces more often today than ever before. Historically, conventional stitched and woven turf reinforcement mats (TRMs) have proven to be effective vegetative “soft armor” alternatives to “hard armor” rock and concrete materials for stabilizing many of these areas. However, conventional TRMs do not provide nearly the same level of erosion protection as hard armor materials until they become well vegetated, which can take several months to several years. If a large storm event occurs before vegetation is fully established, conventional TRMs are prone to erosion failure, which may result in severe damage to the protected water conveyance/containment structures and nearby infrastructure, large sediment discharges, expensive site repairs, and project delays. Today’s more frequent high intensity storm events are exacerbating this risk by increasing the odds of TRMs being exposed to flows exceeding their performance limits before vegetation establishment. This presentation discusses the development and application of new turf reinforcement mats which offer substantially increased pre-vegetated erosion protection for reduced risk of failure prior to vegetation establishment. These products, marketed under the tradename InstaTurf, utilize simulated turf structures to perform like reinforced natural turf, rock riprap and concrete blocks, from day one of installation. Proven through ASTM D6460 large-scale channel testing to provide highly effective unvegetated erosion protection under flow-induced shear stresses exceeding 10 lbs/sf, these products are well suited for establishing and reinforcing vegetation in high flow applications now considered too risky for conventional TRMs.
The Planning, Design and Operations Approach to Best Management Practices and Erosion and Sediment Control
Recorded 07/28/2020
Recorded 07/28/2020 From my first Hydrology Book, Hydrology for Engineers and Planners by Hjelmfelt/Cassidy published in 1975, “ESTIMATION OF SOME ASPECT of the quantity of water available is of prime importance in all water resources engineering. The analysis is basic to the planning, design, and operation of water resource systems.” This presentation will focus on this not so new concept of planning, design and operation of water resources system and how it can address all the “Hot Topics” including the challenges related to climate change. This concept is tweaked slightly for BMP’s to be defined as PLANNING (common sense approaches and up-front maintenance discussions), DESIGN (proof your layout will work and function as planned), and OPERATION (maintenance planning, implementation and resiliency). The presentation will further expand on the value of resiliency in design using the graphical representation of resiliency as a function of time and operational efficiency. This graphic representation aids in a better understanding of the value of maintenance and the potential cost of not doing it. The presentation will conclude with case studies (successes and failures) and other examples of recent projects that represent how using the planning, design and operation analysis can lead to better construction and post-construction BMP designs.
The Way To Keep Your Post-Construction BMPs in Compliance Is To Stop Doing The Things That Don't Work
Recorded 07/30/2020
Recorded 07/30/2020 Many of us in engineering and construction businesses have been designing and building stormwater BMPs for years – if not decades. After observing many noteworthy successes and studying some unfortunate failures, we’ve learned a lot about how these systems work. At the same time, there is much learning left to be done, if we want to give our customers the most cost-effective treatment systems possible. Unfortunately, design and construction teams seldom have the opportunity to monitor the as-built functionality of their systems. Without benefit of this feedback mechanism, they are neither exploiting their successes nor correcting their failures. Smart owners however, are turning their attention to the goal of getting the best performance from these systems at the least annual operating and maintenance cost. This program highlights how design and construction decisions impact the functionality and the life-cycle cost of your stormwater BMPs. The foundation of this program is built around the things Stormwater STL has learned during more than 2000 inspections and features real life examples – utilizing plenty of photos – of both good and not so good design and construction practices. We will point out some of the details that have system owners cussing their designer and/or contractor every time it rains. Recommendations will also be offered for changes that will reduce operating and maintenance costs, improve customer relationships and strengthen your firm’s brand in today’s competitive marketplace.
