Designing Effective Construction Site Sediment Containment Systems

It’s More Just than 3,600 Ft.3/Acre!
Designing Effective
Construction Site
Sediment Containment Systems

Presenters:
Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., CISEC, CPESC  
& Tina R. Wills, PE, CISEC
HydroDynamics Incorporated
Thurs., Sept. 18th @ 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT,
1-1.5hr* Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEU

In 1992, the EPA stated that construction sites must have sediment containment systems (SCSs) with sufficient volume that can capture the runoff from a 2-year, 24-hour storm event creating 3 inches of precipitation…resulting in 1-inch or approximately 3,600 ft.3/acre of runoff. But, is this enough?

Join returning speakers Jerry Fifield and Tina Wills as they challenge this , and explore the design best practices, techniques, computations, and analysis in designing effective construction site sediment containment systems.
