Low Impact Development, Stream Stabilization and Erosion Control
This 6.5 hour live lecture presentation covers the impact of human activity on the natural world, erosion and sediment control, low impact development and needed urban stormwater management, stream stabilization and restoration.
Water / Stormwater Management
Health, Safety and Welfare
Learners will be able to describe how human activity, including increased impervious surfaces, pollution, and streams used for stormwater disposal, impact the natural world and what are practical responses to such impacts.
Learners will be able to reference federal and state regulations and permitting requirements for activities that cause erosion and sedimentation.
Learners will be able to identify and describe needed changes in urban stormwater management and how low impact development (LID) strategies, including construction best management practices can improve stormwater management.
Learners will be able to explain why streambanks become unstable and how stream bank degradation impacts habitat and increases flooding, and they will be able to identify strategies to restore and stabilize stream banks, and minimize the impact of construction activities near streams.
