Designing Permanent Erosion and Sediment Control Systems
Development of land, whether it is for a new highway or a new office building, requires the re-contouring of terrain. And as such, requires a redistribution of drainage patterns. This change in the land creates the potential for long term erosion through storm events that occur during the life of the project. To prevent long term erosion, permanent erosion and sediment control system need to be developed as an integral part of the projects’ designs. The primary goals of this interactive online course are to familiarize Engineers, Architects and Contractors with the design and application of different Best Management Practices (or BMPs for short) in the design of Permanent Erosion and Sediment Control.
- Describe the need for permanent erosion and sediment control systems, how to protect the environment, and how to save time and money lost to erosion damage
- List the limitations of different soil types and soil coverings to sustain runoff while at the same time minimizing impact to health, safety and welfare of the community.
- Identify the methods and strategies used for permanent erosion and sediment control.
- Select the adequate erosion control design applications according to specific site characteristics, such as area of drainage basin and terrain slope.
- Identify the Best Management Practices (BMPs) for permanent erosion and sediment control in order to mitigate flooding, reduce pollution, and provide other amenities.

I received hard copies of this course and five additional courses and this course, Permanent Erosion and Sediment Control, I marked up paper copies of the exam and faxed them to 1 813 286 7992 but no response has happened. The rest of the courses I plan to use this email to submit the course tests. Thanks. Don McCutcheon

As is the case in most courses even when the material and presentation is excellent as it was in this course, the test questions do not closely follow the material and provide for ambiguity. their really should be individuals with the knowledge that matches the presenter to properly prepare the test questions
