Environmental Challenges of Coal Combustion Residual Landfill Development, by Barney Blackburn, PE, CPESC, CPSWQ; Terry Herdman; Mark Lehner, PE, & John T. Massey-Norton, Environmental excellence and compliance goals were achieved at the Amos Landfill site in rugged mountain terrain through comprehensive planning, effective implementation, and diligent maintenance of erosion, sediment, and turbidity control devices.
Waterfront Construction with Geosynthetics, by Chris Kelsey, Geosynthetic solutions to waterfront construction activities/infrastructure include turbidity curtains, underlay for hard armor, matting guards in channels, & geotextiles in eutrophication prevention applications on lakes to provide flood defense, improve civil infrastructure, support tourism, protect aquaculture and fishing, and more.
Restoration Project Improves Creek, Surrounding Riparian Corridor, by Virginia Mahacek; Meghan Kelly, PE & Stephen Peck, PE, PMP, CPSWQ, QSD/P, The primary objective of The Middle Rosewood Creek Area A SEZ Restoration Project was to prevent continued large-scale streambank erosion, and simultaneously improve the opportunity for water quality treatment, by reconnecting the channel with its floodplain. Secondary objectives were to enhance riparian and wetlands functions in the SEZ, improve fish passage and habitat, and enhance wildlife habitat - all while ensuring flood protection and managing fire risks.
West River Parkway Slope Repairs, by Adam Popenhagen, CPESC, CPSWQ, CESSWI, Large saturating rainfalls in June of 2014 caused a massive slope failure into the Minnesota River below and closed the West River Road that runs adjacent to it. Difficult design parameters and funding issues left the project covered in poly sheeting until 2016. An erosion control design plan was put into place that would address the temporary needs, as well as the long-term sustainability of vegetation on the slope.
Morro Reservoir Rehabilitation Project, by Timothy D. Stark, Ph. D., P.E., D.GE, F.ASCE; Douglas Hilts, S.E. & Jennifer Miller, M.S., Morro Reservoir underwent a major rehabilitation project, which incluced a new composite geosynthetic liner system and a floating cover to protect the potable water.
Applications of Coir Erosion Control Products in Soil Bioengineering, by Siby Pothen, PE, Coir erosion control products provide natural erosion protection giving native plants time to colonize and stabilize streambanks, wetlands or hillside soils. The longevity of these products provide adequate time for the development of a well-established root system, which eventually offers long-term erosion protection.
Restoring Wetland and Revenue in Agricultrual Harford County, by Jessica Cherewich, An 18-acre wetland restoration project was proposed on a watershed farm, implementing three shallow water wetland developments, simultaneously creating 3.5 acres of viable waterfowl hunting habitat which provides increased revenue for the landowner.
Trailblazers in Stormwater Management, by Justin Alexander, PLA, ASLA, A new hotel development in Pennsylvania used a unique and innovative approach to stormwater management. Combining Phyto & LID allowed the team a cost-effective solution to maximize development potential of usable area onsite, while maintaining compliance with all Township and Regulatory Agency guidelines.
Boardwalk rebuilt to Last After Destruction by Superstorm Sandy, by Rachel J. Burckardt, P.E., The damage to the walkway at Niantic Bay Overlook from Hurricane Irene in August 2011 resulted in major revetment displacement, and subsequent structural damage to the fabric-wrapped geotextile strata, so it was closed after the storm. Plans were being made to restore the walkway but with more attention to resiliency.
