Webinars and Events

MEET THE FACULTY


Introduction to RUSLE 2


Introduction to RUSLE2
Applications for Construction Site
Erosion Control

Presenters:
Terrence J. Toy, Ph.D., CPESC
Consultant; Professor Emeritus, University of Denver
David T. Lightle, CPESC
Erosion Model Consultant
Wed., February 24 @ 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST,
1.5-2hr*
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs

Do you know your RUSLE2? Join Terry Toy and David Lightle as they explore the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE2) and how you can utilize RUSLE2 to estimate erosion on construction sites based upon the climate, soils, topography, surface cover, and management practices. In this webinar we'll cover: the RUSLE2 basics, the program interface features, program input methods to characterize the construction site's erosional environment, and how to interpret the soil loss and sediment yield outputs.

Energy Planning

Energy Master Planning
for Facilities

Presenter:
Jared Higgins, PE, CEM, CPMP, GGP
Mechanical Engineering Corporate Associate and
Team Leader
Parkhill, Smith, & Cooper, Inc.
Thurs., February 25th @ 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST
1-1.5hr*
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs

With energy regulations and costs on the rise, many companies are implementing Energy Master Plans (EMPs) to reduce their energy consumption and costs. These EMPs analyze facility systems, identify potential issues, and outline energy conservation measures to meet today and tomorrow's regulations. Do you have an Energy Master Plan in place? Should you?

Join returning speaker Jared Higgins to explore how to design an Energy Master Plan (EMP) for your facility (or facilities) that reduces your energy use, meets federal and state regulations, AND lowers your operational costs.

Stormawtare Performance Assessment



Stormwater Performance Assessment:
Inspection, Testing, and Monitoring

Presenter:
Andrew J. Erickson, M.S., P.E.,
Research Fellow,
St. Anthony Falls laboratory, University of Minnesota.
Thurs., March 3 @ 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST,
1-1.5hr*
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs

Even the best designed stormwater treatment practices decline in performance over time. As such, regular assessment of performance is critical for long-term success. Join returning speaker Andrew Erickson to explore field-tested stormwater assessment methods – visual inspection, testing, and monitoring – and how you can select and apply these to effectively measure and assess the performance of your stormwater project.
