Subsidized Training – Turbidity Control on Construction Sites
Mar 24 @ 8:00 am – 4:30 pm

This workshop will review turbidity sources, soil properties, and available chemicals and their associated properties to understand how to approach the problem.

TRIECA Annual Conference March 25 to 26, 2020

This training event was produced through the Climate Change Adaptation Platform, with support from Natural Resources Canada.
Visit www.trieca.com for full conference details.  Early bird registration for conference ends Friday, March 6, 2020!

Arrival & Registration:  7:00 – 8:00 am | Course:  8:00 – 4:30 pm |

Course Description:

When it rains on an active construction site, the runoff inevitably will be very muddy looking, or turbid, even after it passes through sediment control measures.  Treating this runoff with small amounts of chemicals that coagulate or flocculate the suspended sediment can be a relatively simple and inexpensive practice.  In this class we’ll review turbidity sources, soil properties, and available chemicals and their associated properties to understand how to approach the problem.  Furthermore, we’ll review a wide variety of systems that can be deployed to reduce discharged turbidity by 10-100X.

Instructor:

Rich McLaughlin, Professor, Urban Soil and Water Management, North Carolina State University

Learning Objectives:

Attendees of this class will be able to:

  1. Understand the nature of the turbidity problem relative to conventional erosion and sediment control practices.
  2. Become knowledgeable about the options for turbidity control on construction sites.
  3. Be able to assess the relative risks and benefits of chemical treatments for turbidity control.
  4. Estimate the costs involved in turbidity control.

Who Should Attend?

All involved in designing, inspecting, and maintaining erosion and sediment control practices on construction sites.
