Erosion and Sediment Control

Technical Paper

Success and Failure with Sediment Control Logs

Wednesday, February 14
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

PDH: 1

Location: 102B

Level of Presentation: All: Suitable for a broad audience

This presentation will cover a variety of topics related to sediment control logs, beginning with an introduction to sediment control logs and describing the many possible materials used to create the logs, then following up with the uses and misuses of these devices. The presentation is intended to start with the basics and get more complicated so that most everyone will hear something new.

John A. Chapman

Assistant Research Professor and Program Director
University Of Minnesota

John Chapman is an Assistant Research Professor for the University of Minnesota Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering and also serves as the Director of the Erosion and Stormwater Management Certification Program. The Erosion and Stormwater Management Certification Program is a joint venture with the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to provide continuing stormwater education and certification for engineers and contractors. The certification program offers classes on construction site, industrial site, and municipal stormwater controls and management, along with other topics.

Areas of research include the use of vegetation for erosion control and stormwater management, hydrodynamics of vegetation and flexible objects, and soil infiltration.

Prior to working for the University of Minnesota, John worked as an engineering consultant on hazard evaluation of slopes and debris flows and other water resources and geotechnical engineering projects in the central and western United States. Much of his experience has been in erosion, landslides, natural hazard mitigation, and infrastructure development. John is a registered professional engineer in Minnesota and Colorado. He graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Ph.D. in civil engineering, and the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a MS degree in civil engineering and a BS degree in geology and geological engineering.

John has served as a co-chair of the 2013 International Low Impact Development Symposium, the President of the Minnesota Erosion Control Association. John has also served as the President of the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society Twin Cities Alumni chapter and the Minnesota Stormwater Steering Committee as Chairman of the Education workgroup.
