Attention: Stormwater managers, hydrologists, watershed managers, municipal water authorities, county conservation specialists. Here is a fully up-to-date book, by three leading experts, containing critical design tools for practical implementation of techniques to control and abate run-off and sediment from construction sites. With many original illustrations and examples, this text provides the design principles to monitor and to implement mitigating steps that will enable you and your staff to meet regulations by taking steps that fit the development level, soil type, and rainfall amounts of your region. The information presented here is need-to-know technology for anyone tasked with planning, implementing, or monitoring stormwater in urban, suburban and rural settings.TABLE OF CONTENTS Chapter 1: Introduction to Erosion and Sediment Control, Problems and Regulations Am Problems Associated with Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Loss Am Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control Regulations Am Basic Control of Construction Site Runoff Am Example Construction Site Erosion Control and Stormwater Management Requirements Am Need for Adequate Design and Inspection Am Important Internet Links Chapter 2: Selection of Controls and Site Planning Am Introduction Am Example Construction Site Control Requirements Am Planning Steps and Components for Construction Site Control Am Amounts of Construction Subject to Erosion and Sediment Control and their Costs Chapter 3: Regional Rainfall Conditions and Site Hydrology for Construction Site Erosion Evaluations Am Introduction: Hydrology for the Design of Construction Erosion Controls Local Rainfall Conditions Relevant to Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control Design Methods of Determining Runoff a€c Watershed Delineation Am Use of the SCS (NRCS) TR-55 Method for Construction Site Hydrology Evaluations Am WinTR55 Am Summary Am Important Internet Links Chapter 4: Erosion Mechanisms, the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE), and Vegetation Erosion Controls Am Introduction Am Basic Erosion Mechanisms and Rain Energy Am The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) and Relating Rain Energy to Erosion Yield Am RUSLE2 Information Am Basic Predictions of Soil Losses from a Construction Site Am Use and Selection of Vegetation at Construction Sites Am Establishing Vegetation Am Summary Am Important Links Chapter 5: Channel and Slope Stability for Construction Site Erosion Control Am Introduction Am General Channel Stability Shear Stress Relation Am Design of Grass-Lined Channels Am Drainage Design using Turf-Reinforcing Mats Am Channel Design using Concrete and Riprap Liner Materials Am Slope Stability Applied to Construction Site Erosion Control Design Am Use of Newly Developed Erosion Controls Chapter 6: Temporary Ponds and Filter Fabric Barriers for Construction Site Sediment Control Am Introduction Am Detention Pond Design Fundamentals Am Example Pond Design for Construction Site Sediment Control and Comparison with Modeling Results Am Example Detention Pond Shape Calculations Am Example Sizing of Sediment Pond at Construction Site Am Example Use of Chemical-Assisted Sedimentation at Construction Sites Am Filter Fences for Construction Site Sediment Control Chapter 7: Construction Site Erosion Control References and Internet Sources Am Internet Sources Am Abstracts for Selected References Index HOME Log In BOOKSTORE ELECTRONIC GUIDELINES REQUEST-A-QUOTE ABOUT US SHIPPING INFORMATION PAYMENT AND RETURN POLICY MARKETING AND SALES CONTACT US PROCEEDINGS SERVICES - Author/Presenter Guidelines - Bound Proceedings Books - CD-ROM Proceedings - Online Services - Optional Marketing and Sales - Fulfillment Services - Download Files for Collection - Custom Publications - Journal/Newsletter Services Advanced MaterialsState Erosion Control Handbooks Available on the Internet Alabama Alabama Handbook for Erosion Control ... officials stormpub.htm Minnesota Protecting Water Quality in Urban Areas: A Manualanbsp;...
