Sediment-laden discharges from construction sites can have detrimental effects on the ecosystem if perimeter control products and/or practices fail to perform as intended. Although the primary goals of perimeter control practices are typically the same (i.e., sediment retention and water quality improvement), knowing when, where, and how to use various perimeter controls may not always be apparent. This industry roundtable will provide an opportunity for attendees to collaborate, interact, and discuss open-ended topics pertaining to their experiences with various perimeter control practices in an effort to identify lessons learned in the successful applications of practices. Discussions will revolve around types of perimeter controls, design guidance, application, in-field performance, typical failure modes, maintenance requirements, and innovations.
Gain insight on various types and applications of perimeter control practices used in construction through collaborative discussion.
Engage in open-ended, thought provoking discussions with practitioners to obtain an understanding of applied strategies used to protect construction site perimeters.
Become knowledgeable on new, innovative perimeter control application, installation, and maintenance practices shared by attendee participation.
