SME: Alfredo Cely, P.E., MSEM

Average Rating

4 9
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.
Course Objectives
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • 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.
