II - Design Principles for Erosion Prevention and Sediment
Control for Construction Sites
course is designed for engineers, environmental designers, plan
preparers and reviewers. Landscape architects and other professionals
with the construction site planning and design are encouraged to
attend. Detailed instruction is given on the engineering technologies
to control stormwater on a construction site. Workshop
will obtain the tools needed for developing an
erosion and sediment control plan as described in TDECís
Tennessee Erosion & Sediment Control Handbook and required
by the Tennessee
General Construction Stormwater Permit.

TOPICS DISCUSSED INCLUDE:
Site investigation and hydrologic analysis
• Alternative peak discharge methods
• Conveyance system design (open channels, rip rap, RECP's, etc.)
• Sediment transport process and analysis
• Overview and design of selected common vegetative and structural controls
control/ stormwater management ponds, check-dams, diversions,
OBJECTIVES AND GOALS:
• Review of surface water hydrologic principles and hydrologic evaluation
for construction sites including time of concentration, runoff
coefficient, & storm
• Review of peak runoff methods, including Rational & TR-55
• Understanding design principles and performance of Best
(BMPs), including detailed temporary sediment pond analysis.
• Application of NRCS TR-55 software for determining construction site
of RUSLE software to evaluate various erosion reduction covers and practices.
Prerequisites: The Level I course, Fundamentals
of Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control, is
required; the workshop
participant should have a basic understanding of surface
water hydrology either
through formal engineering training or through equivalent
needed: Bring a copy of the current edition of the Tennessee Erosion and
Sediment Control Handbook: A Guide to the Protection of State
the use of Best Management Practices during Land Disturbing
please bring it to the course. Also, bring a portable
calculator and pencil.
