COURSE TITLE: Construction Site Storm Water - Runoff Control
COURSE NO: C02-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Construction Site Storm Water - Runoff Control
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course addresses EPA's BMP for the protection of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems, protection of public health, 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 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 runoff controls 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 runoff control systems
  • Applicability
  • Siting and design criteria
  • 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 “Runoff Control” section of the “Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control”. This section of the BMP addresses the following runoff control methods:

  • Land Grading
  • Permanent Diversions
  • Preserving Natural Vegetation
  • Construction Entrances
  • Check Dams
  • Filter Berms
  • Grass-Lined Channels
  • Riprap

COURSE TITLE: Durability of Geosynthetics for Highway Applications
COURSE NO: C01-018
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Durability of Geosynthetics for Highway Applications
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents a study that addresses various aspects of geosynthetic durability to develop procedures that could be used to predict long-term strength losses of geosynthetics used in highway applications. These procedures are essential to designers for allowing tensile capacity for geosynthetics used primarily in mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining walls, reinforced soil slopes, and foundation stabilization.

 

This study was initiated to allow voiced concerns that stress-cracking potential was not being considered in developing the allowable tension load capacity for design when using high-density polyethylene (HDPE) geogrids. Stress cracking is a potential mode of failure occurring in thermoplastic materials that are under a sustained stress significantly lower than the material’s room temperature yield strength, resulting in quasi-brittle fracture of the material. This is also known as slow crack growth and environmental stress cracking (ESC) when in contact with certain aqueous solutions.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable to all civil engineers, highway design professionals, transportation planners, material manufacturers and all personnel interested in learning about geosynthetics for highway applications.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Developing testing protocols necessary to quantify any strength reduction due to aging or stress mechanisms for geosynthetics
  • Developing testing protocols for confined stress-strain testing, which could more accurately characterize key engineering properties
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Report No. FHWA-RD-97-142, "Durability of Geosynthetics for Highway Applications”.

Course Quiz
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 1 PDH credit. The quiz will be based on this FHWA 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.

COURSE TITLE: Low Impact Development Design Strategies
COURSE NO: C07-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Low Impact Development Design Strategies
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the wide array of impact reduction and site design techniques that allow engineers and planners to create stormwater control mechanisms that function in a manner similar to that of natural control mechanisms.

 

The low-impact development (LID) approach combines a hydrologically functional site design with pollution prevention measures to compensate for land development impacts on hydrology and water quality. The primary goal of Low Impact Development methods is to mimic the predevelopment site hydrology by using site design techniques that store, infiltrate, evaporate, and detain runoff. Use of these techniques helps to reduce off-site runoff and ensure adequate groundwater recharge. Since every aspect of site development affects the hydrologic response of the site, LID control techniques focus mainly on site hydrology.

 

This 7 PDH online course is intended for civil and environmental engineers and planners as well as construction professionals who are interested in learning about low impact development design techniques and their applications.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding low-impact development goals
  • Understanding low-impact development site planning
  • Understanding low-impact development hydrologic analysis
  • Understanding low-impact development integrated management
  • Understanding erosion and sediment control considerations for low-impact development
Course Document
