With a growing occurrence of extreme weather events, there is also an increase in erosion from flooding and wind. Erosion is a natural process, but when increased it can be devastating to the natural environment and built environment. This two-hour webinar will explore innovative erosion and sediment control techniques that minimize erosion control risks, maximize performance, and reduce project costs. A variety of erosion control methods are available, and this webinar will briefly discuss simple, established approaches (e.g., gabions, bioswales), but will primarily focus on innovative, environmentally friendly approaches (e.g., microbial biopolymers, bioengineered living shorelines). The webinar will include project site examples that utilize the latest design tools and erosion control technologies.
