Erosion & Sediment Control on Linear Utility Projects

This webcast aired on Thursday, Aug 15, 2019

Hold on for a non-stop one-hour webinar ride! Review innovative design features for erosion, sediment, and turbidity control for linear utility applications. Pick up new technologies as a plan designer that you can incorporate into your next SWPPP. Obtain tips as a project manager to deliver environmental protection components of your job on budget and on time. Learn how to properly install and maintain innovative BMPs on linear projects as a site superintendent or lead foreman. Discover methods to address containment, recovery, and restoration for horizontal directional drilling inadvertent returns.

Learning Objectives:

  • Build margin into the E&SC plan design for linear pipelines
  • Emphasize additional protective methods and measures at environmentally sensitive areas
  • Discover implementation and Execution tips for Storm Ready projects
  • Review flocculant applications to maximize treatment of construction stormwater runoff
  • Introduce methods to manage Inadvertent releases for horizontal directional drilling operations
