Design, Construction and Maintenance for Permanent Erosion Control

I was never taught this! Preventing erosion from concentrated flows long after a project has ended is key to achieving water quality goals and providing for public safety. But permanent erosion control is rarely taught or designed and systems are failing. This presentation provide clear understanding of what to install and what to never install.

Full Abstract
This presentation will cover design, construction and maintenance of permanent erosion control stormwater facilities. Stormsewer facilities that will be addressed include stormsewer outlets, riprap and filter, articulated block and revetment mats, non-photodegrading turf reinforcement materials (TRMs), energy dissipaters, and trash racks. The targeted audience includes: seasoned, midlevel and entry level engineers, engineering technicians; architects; water resource managers; permitting and development review personnel for city, county, regional, state and federal agencies; and stormwater system maintenance supervisors, managers, and crew members. It includes a significant amount of photo representation or easy visualization and understanding of what works and what doesn't work. There will be numerous material and design considerations the audience will be able to immediately take back and use.
