The ABCs of BMP Installation
This 0.5 CEU Video Course covers (14) standard, benchmark BMPs, from Soil Preparation/Soil Roughening, to Turf Reinforcement Mats, to Stabilized Construction Entrance, to Sediment Barriers for Slope Interruption and Toe-of-Slope Applications. The course also includes the free download of BMP Manual – Best of the BMPs Guidance Manual, 5th Edition to help reference the Construction Specifications and Inspection and Maintenance Recommendations for each BMP.
The video course takes the learner to a level un-available via the standard webinar format. The student will have to ability to recognize that specified installation rates were applied, see Straw Mulch applied at 1T/ac (2000kg/ha), and then compare it to what 2T/ac (4000kg/ha) looks like. How is a tackifier applied? Also compare BFM applications of 3.500-4,000#/ac (4000kg/ha) to a lesser amount. See, first-hand (almost!) what BFM applied at 100% coverage looks like in the field.
