This short presentation will set the stage for a demonstration of BMPs to be installed in a sediment pond in the afternoon, when attendees will actually install BMPs in a cell. Another cell have no BMPs installed. Following a simulated rainfall event, discharge samples will be collected and characterized.
Participants will be able to identify which BMPs are needed to minimize sediment transport into a sediment pond, within the pond,and after discharge from a sediment pond.
Participanst will be able to evaluate BMP design characteristics that affect BMP efficiency.
Participants will be able to make improvements within existing sediment ponds to improve their sediment-trapping efficiency.
