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.

Writing Contract Specifications

Topic: Writing specifications is always challenging. Writing specifications that incorporate environmental permit requirements is especially challenging. After this presentation, attendees will understand the difference between contract and permit language, how to determine what parts of a permit should be in a contract, and how to translate permit language into enforceable contract language.

Wet Weather Construction

Title: Wet Weather Construction As we enter the fall season, it’s time to think about rain, maybe lots of it. stormy weather is coming-will you be ready for it? This presentation will show ways to prepare for it. Dave will walk through several projects and talk about how they survived, covering design, best management practices, field changes, and working with contractors.

Hosted by the International Erosion Control Association, the Idaho State Representative and the Pacific Northwest Chapter of IECA

Join the International Erosion Control Association (IECA) for The Pacific Northwest Virtual Connection: Dust Control – Let’s Clear the Air. This event offers two (2) recorded webinars with 2 hours of available Professional Development Hours. No cost for IECA members and $25 USD for nonmembers. Learn from industry leaders as they tackle the tough challenges of soil stabilization and dust control.

Attendees can expect to learn about natural soil stabilizers for the control of dust on roads, mines, and stockpiles as well as controlling dust during typical construction activities such as earthmoving, hauling, cutting, drilling, and asphalt preparation.

Agenda:

On-Demand

Dust Palliatives and ApplicationsMatt Smith, HMI Hamilton Manufacturing, Inc.

Maintaining air quality during construction is difficult. Environments and soil types vary as much as dust palliative products. This presentation will address application practices and product variations to find the right product for your project. Controlling Fugitive DustDerek Aubrey, Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency

Why is fugitive dust an issue and what reasonable precautions can you take to prevent it. What things will a compliance inspector be looking for while observing your site. 

On-Demand

Managing Fugitive Dust from Construction Projects
Dave Jenkins, CPESC, President IECA-PNW Chapter

Fugitive dust from construction activities is a nuisance to neighbors, a hazard to workers and may violate local and state air quality regulations. This presentation, based on the 1997 AGC of Washington and Fugitive Dust Task Force brochure “Guide to Handling Fugitive Dust from Construction Projects”, will cover construction dust sources and how to manage them, including earthmoving, loading, unloading, stockpiling, haul roads, concrete cutting and drilling, sediment track out and other construction “means and methods”.

Notice: After you register for this event, be sure to ‘add to calendar’ either from the content tab or when you receive the confirmation email. You will join the event through this same page in the IECA eHub. If you miss a live event, it will be recorded.
