COURSE TITLE: Stream Restoration
COURSE NO: C07-005
Stream Restoration
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course covers procedures for evaluating the stability of a stream channel reach and planning and design for restoration of an unstable stream channel reach to bring it back into a stable condition.

 

A natural stream channel remains stable over a wide range of flows, typically accumulating sediment during low flow periods and carrying sediment downstream during high flow periods. Changes to the channel, vegetation, floodplain, flow or sediment supply may affect the equilibrium and cause the stream channel to become unstable.

 

This 7 PDH online course is intended primarily for civil engineers, hydraulic engineers, hydrologists, and geologists. Someone completing this course will gain knowledge about stream channel evaluation and stream channel restoration procedures.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarization with the fluvial processes
  • Learning stream assessment and survey procedures
  • Understanding the Rosgen stream classification systems
  • Learning how to conduct bankfull verification and gage station analyses
  • Understanding the priority options for restoring incised streams
  • Knowing the reference reach surveys
  • Learning design procedures
  • Understanding structures for stream restoration
  • Understanding riparian-buffer re-establishment
  • Developing erosion and sediment control plans
  • Conducting flood studies
  • Performing restoration evaluation and monitoring
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document, "Stream Restoration - A Natural Channel Design Handbook," prepared by the North Carolina Stream Restoration Institute and North Carolina Sea Grant.

COURSE TITLE: Stormwater Best Management Practice Design: Overview
COURSE NO: C06-004
COURSE PROVIDER: Michael Nilsson, P.E.
Stormwater Best Management Practice Design: Overview
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of wet weather flow impacts on receiving waters, regulations that impact stormwater BMP design, design concepts and BMP types and selection.

 

The goals and objectives of best management practice (BMP) for stormwater management are as diverse as the situations to which they are applied.

 

This 6 PDH online course is applicable to civil and geotechnical engineers, site developers, and contractors as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning and design of stormwater systems.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Wet weather flow impacts including physical, chemical and biological
  • Overview of Federal, State and Municipal regulations
  • BMP performance goals and objectives
  • Hydrologic concepts
  • Peak discharge control strategies
  • Water quality control strategies
  • BMP types and selection
  • Watershed and other factors influencing stormwater management decisions
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Sections 1 through 5 of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Publication EPA/600/R-04/121, "Stormwater Best Management Practice Design Guide: Volume 1 General Considerations".

COURSE TITLE: Construction Site Storm Water - Good Housekeeping
COURSE NO: C02-003
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Construction Site Storm Water - Good Housekeeping
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the types and methods of construction site housekeeping practices, applicability, maintenance and cost considerations.

 

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 December 8, 1999, that describes a menu of Best Management Practices (BMP). “Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control” is one of the Best Management Practices that requires operators of small MS4s in urbanized areas to implement a storm water management program for the protection of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems, improved quality of receiving water bodies, conservation of water resources, flood control, and protection of public health.

 

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 good housekeeping practices for storm water runoff from construction sites.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Types and methods of construction site good housekeeping practices
  • Applicability
  • Siting and design criteria/implementation
  • Maintenance and cost considerations
  • Effectiveness and limitations
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review EPA’s Best Management Practice relating to the “Good Housekeeping” section of the “Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control”. This section of the BMP addresses the following “Good Housekeeping” methods:

 

  • General Construction Site Waste Management
  • Spill Prevention and Control Plan
  • Vehicle Maintenance and Washing Areas
  • Contractor Certification and Inspector Training
  • Construction Reviewer
  • BMP Inspection and Maintenance
  • Model Ordinances

Course Quiz

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 2 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on the “Good Housekeeping” section of this EPA publication.

The minimum passing score is 70%. There is no time limit on the quiz, and you can take it multiple times until you pass at no additional cost.
