On Demand Courses
Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Preventing Trackout
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin. Sponsored by: Clear Water Services You’ve used rock entrances, sweepers, tire baths and you still have sediment trackout violations. With so many options available, how do you decide which BMP to use? Seattle-Tacoma International Airport operates under a strict Industrial NPDES permit with construction stormwater effluent limits. To comply with the permit during construction, we implemented a “no visible trackout” policy in 2000. This presentation will summarize the lessons learned over the past 20 years. We will investigate rock entrances, hosing tires, tire baths, tire washes, sweeping, and various prevention methods. At the end of the presentation, you will be able to thoughtfully choose the right methods for minimizing and preventing sediment trackout from your project, how to specify them in a contract, how to inspect them, and how to adapt them to changing site conditions.
Expecting the Unexpected: Managing Stormwater in a 100-Year Floodplain
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin. Sponsored by: Cascade Geosynthetics What happens when a contractor is on the way out, it rains 28 days in a row, and the soils onsite don’t infiltrate? A perfect storm - a stormwater management storm, that is. Located in the Duwamish Valley, adjacent to the Green River, this case study looks at the the events that lead to a site becoming inundated with floodwater, the steps taken to regain compliance, and how to plan for a better (drier) future.
Improving Specification of Subsurface LID Measures
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin. The specification of private construction projects has long been a limited endeavor. These projects typically do not have the large CSI Specifications of publicly bid projects. This coupled with re-usage of details can lead to confusing and inconsistent bidding and installation. The industry has not taken a deep enough dive into subsurface BMP specification. Too many engineers rely on manufacturer data sheets and do not understand all aspects of design, specification, and construction. Subsurface BMPs are more than just a way to treat post-construction stormwater runoff. The BMP is like a building underground. It is impacted by vertical loads, lateral load, and other factors during and after construction. This means that you must ensure you are considering all the impacts of your design on the specified product. It also is a reason to better understand the testing methods employed by manufacturers and how that relates to real-world applications and installations. Additionally, the product selection, calculation methods and water quality impacts of the different systems vary greatly. From arch and pipe systems being reliant on the stone for strength and storage volume. To box structures and concrete vaults being the load supporting structure and providing a much larger storage void space. This leads to the need for detailed analysis during the design process, reduction of over-designed capacities and ensuring a specification is clearly acceptable to regulatory administrations. Subsurface systems are a vital component of the treatment train approach but are not the only component. From the inlet to the discharge, the sequence of devices will have an impact on their performance and the overall performance of the train approach. Finally, too many designers take a lax approach to the specification clarity leading to confusion during the bidding and construction process. Too many project plans include basic outline plan views, lack profile sections of the system and are sometimes missing important details to the construction of the system. These include incomplete drawing information and cross manufacturer details. This causes bidding processes to be inconsistent and for products to get switched out without proper review and understanding of the impacts. In this presentation, we will be focusing on the necessity to improve the understanding of subsurface systems in design considerations and plan preparation. The presentation will cover the differences in applications, product types, and key considerations, as well as go through ways to improve plans. Topics will include footprint, strength, buoyancy, and maintenance and more. The presentation allows participants to be better to understand how to improve designs and provide a clear and concise specification.
International Arrivals Facility – Managing Erosion Control and Stormwater During Construction of SeaTac Airports Shining New Star.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin. Sponsored by: Clear Water Services A look at the different erosion control and stormwater issues involved with the construction of a Billion dollar Design Build terminal expansion project.
Sunset Side Slope Stabilization
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin. Sponsored by: Cascade Geosynthetics Washington is known as the "Evergreen State" and has acres of territory true to the emerald name. Vashon Island is one of its jewels: a tree covered island community in the Puget Sound known for sustainable farming practices and beautiful marine views and vistas. The topography and geography underfoot when enjoying the stunning views is unfortunately unstable wet ground prone to slides. Responding quickly to King County's request, Encore Environmental and GSI, Inc worked together to provide a slope stabilization solution for the west side of Vashon, the sunset side of the island.
The Excellent CESCL
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin. Sponsored by: Clear Water Services Washington’s Construction Stormwater Permit requires that every permitted project have a Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead on board to help ensure permit compliance. Sometimes, though, CESCLs fall short of this goal, resulting in water quality violations and other stormwater problems. What impedes CESCLs from helping their project succeed in stormwater management, and how can they do better? CESCLs need knowledge of the job and the support of other workers, especially management. But they also need to be alert for clues of impending problems. These clues are all around, but are often not obvious. CESCLs will learn about skills and perspectives necessary to do an excellent job and make themselves a valuable asset to their company. Managers will learn the importance of the CESCL’s role, and how better to support it.
WA State Construction Stormwater General Permit Compliance
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin.
Select the "View On-Demand Recording" button to begin. Sponsored by: Cascade Geosynthetics Are you a Construction Stormwater General Permit (CSWGP) site contact, CESCL, permittee, or foreman? Have you ever experienced an inspection with an Ecology inspector or potentially had a penalty issued due to permit non-compliance? Or, have you ever wondered what documents you need to provide to Ecology or a third party when operating under permit coverage? This presentation will cover a wide range of topics including a general overview of the NPDES Construction and Industrial Stormwater General Permits administered by WA Dept. of Ecology. Your presenters will be Mathew Kwartin, both Northwest Regional Office Stormwater Inspector. Mathew and Evan will present the topic at hand and looks forward to your questions and to provide clarification regarding the Construction and Industrial Stormwater General Permits.
