This is a 7.0 hour live lecture presentation with the instructors and students together in the same room. It will be conducted in a handicap-accessible conference room with ample seating space and writing surface for all attendees. Bound written materials, authored by the faculty, will be distributed to all participants at the program. Attendance will be monitored and reported to LA/CES.
This course covers erosion and re-vegetative practices, the impact of soils and landforms, engineering for stormwater management and erosion control, the role of asphalt parking lots in stormwater management, site grading, and stormwater runoff.
Water / Stormwater Management
Health, Safety and Welfare
Learners will be able to describe revegetation practices and other erosion control efforts, including seed selection, soil biotic additives, cost-effective topsoil alternatives, and hydraulic erosion control versus traditional blankets and mats.
Learners will be able to explain the role of soils in site development and the importance of understanding soil characteristics, classifications, engineering properties, underlying geological conditions, and topography.
Learners will be able to identify and describe best management practices for stormwater management and erosion control, and they will be able to describe site grading techniques for various projects.
Learners will be able to apply techniques for effective design and construction of parking lots to achieve successful stormwater management goals.
