02/22/2022: LIVE INTERACTIVE WEBINAR, New Approaches to Erosion and Sediment Control - Second Repeat Presentation, Tuesday, February 22, 2022, 11am-1pm Eastern

2 hrs. Webinar

Level: Intermediate

Item#: RV-W022222

SME: Rumanda Young, Ph.D.

This is a live, repeat presentation of a webinar that was originally offered on 09/22/2021. Attendees of the previously offered presentation, RV-W092221, will not receive CEU for attending the 02/22/2022 presentation.

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.

Note: This is a live webinar delivered via GoToWebinar. Session instructions will be emailed to you 24-48 hours prior to the webinar and the morning of the webinar. If you have not received your instructions for any reason please call Client Support (1-866-546-1212) the day of the event. Webinars are live and interactive. Students will have the ability to directly interact with and ask questions of the presenter.
