Catch Basin Protection

Title: Down the Drain-Catch Basin Protection

Topic: How do you project a catch basin during construction? Is a catch basin insert enough? What are you trying to protect it from-sediment, turbidity, gravel? How to you protect non-standard catch basins, slot drains, curb drains? What about covering them to keep everything out? Should you use plugs in the storm pipe? These and other questions will be discussed in this brief overview of catch basin protection.

Speaker: Dave Jenkins, CPESC, has over 25 years experience in heavy civil, public works construction as an erosion control and stormwater engineer, resident engineer, and construction inspector. He is trying to retire, but feels the need to keep going back to work and is closing out a habitat restoration project for the Port of Seattle.

Tire Washes: Choosing, Specifying and Using

Title: Tire Washes: Choosing, Specifying and Using

Topic: In this presentation you will learn how to decide if you need one, how to avoid using one, what to look for if you do need one, how to make them work even better, how to write some specifications.

Speaker: Dave Jenkins, CPESC. Dave has been working on heavy civil public works construction for almost 30 years. In that time, he has been trying to figure out how to avoid using tire washes. It turns out, when you are working a 600 acre earthwork job over four winter rainy seasons, you really do need a tire wash.
