Erosion & Sediment Control & Storm Water Management

Cost: $150
AFE # for DOT- 73T0

Course Description:

The objective of the South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) Erosion and Sediment Control and Storm Water Management Course is to help you understand the requirements for erosion and sediment control for construction. It will include what is expected of SDDOT, Contractors, and Consultants. This course will also cover what is required by South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (SD DENR) in order to meet the mandates of state and federal legislation. All SDDOT contracts must have a certified Erosion Control Supervisor whose primary responsibility is the construction and maintenance of erosion and sediment control on project sites as noted in Section 734.3 of the Standard Specifications for Roads and Bridges. Successful completion of this training will result in SDDOT Certification in Erosion and Sediment Control.

Best Management Practices (BMP’s) for controlling sediment and erosion and managing Storm Water will be covered to help you with:

  • Selection criteria for BMP’s
  • Design methods and processes
  • Installation details and potential problems with installation
  • Maintenance and management practices for temporary BMP’s

When design and initial installation are complete, continuous inspections and maintenance activities are required to ensure that the controls remain effective throughout the term of construction. It is important that field personnel understand the full range of activities required to effectively manage a construction site. All personnel from design, planning, and construction must understand the permit requirements and all the documents associated with meeting the current storm water quality requirements for construction sites.
