The Best of the BMPs SUMMIT Video Course

John McCullah has been running the erosion and sediment control BMP Summit two-day training course for several years at a purpose-built facility. The two-day Erosion Control BMP Summit provides attendees a unique opportunity for back-to-back classroom and field instruction in erosion and sediment. This on-line video course is based on the curriculum and hands-on experiences presented at the Erosion Control BMP Summit at Shasta College in the US. 

The ABCs of BMP Installation Video Course

This 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 the ability to recognize that specified installation rates were applied, see Straw Mulch applied at 2000kg/ha, and then compare it to what 4000kg/ha looks like.  How is a tackifier applied?  Also compare BFM applications of 4000kg/ha to a lesser amount.  See, first-hand (almost!) what BFM applied at 100% coverage looks like in the field.
