IECA Young Professionals Webinar Series
Five Pillars of Construction Stormwater Management
Part One: The Five Pillars of Construction Stormwater Management Overview and Introduction
The Five Pillars of Stormwater Management is a fundamental approach to managing construction stormwater that includes managing communication, managing work, managing water, managing erosion, and managing sediment. The Five Pillars concept categorizes and prioritizes application of control measures and practices in order of effectiveness and economy. In the first of this two-part series, stormwater and sustainability professional, Barry Fagan will provide an overview of the Five Pillars and will describe application and implementation of the first three pillars.
Presented By: Barry Fagan, PE/PLS, ENV SP, CPESC, CPMSM
Part Two: Pillars Four & Five - Managing Erosion and Sediment
Managing Erosion - Understanding the Players in the Game
Think of erosion and sediment management like a game of soccer or football (depending on where you’re from!). Sediment controls are the goalie. They are the last line of defense and can save you from losing the game. They are always required no matter how good your team is. Erosion controls are the players on the field. A strong focus on keeping soil where it is in the first place (erosion control) – that’s how you win the game!
Presented By: Kel Sanson, CPESC
Effective Sediment Management is Universal
Sediment management is the last line of defense in keeping pollutants from leaving a project area. Using the right tools for the job is crucial in effectively containing and managing any potential discharges. There are numerous tools to choose from when approaching a difficult sediment control problem, and having a thorough knowledge of your site and BMPs will help decide which tool is right for the job. This section of the presentation will also highlight some complications and examples of BMP failures and successes.
