Effective erosion and sediment control is rooted in a fundamental and comprehensive understanding of site processes and basing the selection and application of Best Management Practices (BMPs) on those processes. This course will present the art and science of proper BMP selection and implementation. Students will learn concepts of sustainable erosion control and advanced methods for >2:1 Highway Slopes curriculum and BMPs developed by California Department of Transportation and how to install BMPs that allow nature’s own erosion control processes to provide long-term sustainable site protection. Case studies will be used to describe challenging site conditions and how BMPs were selected and installed to provide sediment and erosion control. Dirt Time videos will give attendees as close to a hands-on experience as possible from the classroom environment!
