Construction Site Storm Water - Sediment Control
This online engineering PDH course addresses EPA's BMP for improved quality of receiving water bodies, conservation of water resources, flood control and more.
Erosion and sedimentation related to construction site storm water runoff can significantly affect the aquatic population and hydraulic characteristics of the receiving waters. Alterations in hydraulic characteristics of streams receiving runoff include higher peak flow rates, increased frequency and duration of bankfull and subbankfull flows, increased occurrences of downstream flooding, and reduced baseflow levels.
EPA recognizes that such alterations can be prevented by implementing an effective storm water management program. Therefore the EPA published the Storm Water Phase II Rule on
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to municipality owners and/or operators, construction contractors/workers, site developers, engineers, managers, and all other personnel involved in the implementation of sediment control for storm water runoff from construction sites.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Types and methods of sediment control systems
- Siting and design criteria
- Maintenance and cost considerations
- Effectiveness and limitations
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review EPA’s Best Management Practice relating to the “Sediment Control” section of the “Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control”. This section of the BMP addresses the following “Sediment Control” methods:
- Temporary Diversion Dikes
- Wind Fences and Sand Fences
- Brush Barrier
- Silt Fence
- Sediment Filters and Sediment Chambers
- Sediment Trap
- Strom Drain Inlet Protection
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 2 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on the “Sediment Control” section of this EPA publication.
Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.)
