Improvements in Standardized Testing for Evaluating Sediment Barrier Performance: Design of a Full-Scale Testing Apparatus
AbstractPerimeter controls [i.e., sediment barriers (SBs) or sediment retention devices] are typically used on construction sites to retain sediment and prevent polluted stormwater runoff from adve...
Development and application of a multi-criteria spatial decision support system for planning sustainable industrial areas in Northern Spain
Abstract The planning, design and construction of an industrial area is quite a complicated and long process due to the scope of the action itself. The drive for a new theory on sustainableExpand
Drought Planning and Management in the Júcar River Basin, Spain
In the Jucar River Basin, water scarcity and hydrological variability produce frequent and long hydrological droughts. Preparation for droughts is achieved through (a) integrated river basinExpand
Evaluation of Inlet Protection Practices (IPPs) Using Large-Scale Testing Techniques

Methodology and Development of a Large-Scale Sediment Basin for Performance Testing
AbstractStormwater regulations require construction-generated pollution to be controlled on-site prior to discharge to avoid impairment of receiving waterbodies. Sediment basins are stormwaterExpand
Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to Conduct Site Inspections of Erosion and Sediment Control Practices and Track Project Progression
Construction activities increase the erosion potential of a site through earth-disturbing processes of vegetative grubbing, topsoil stripping, and grading. Receiving waters become susceptible andExpand
Performance Evaluations of Three Silt Fence Practices Using a Full-Scale Testing Apparatus
Erosion and sediment controls on construction sites minimize environmental impacts from sediment-laden stormwater runoff. Silt fence, a widely specified perimeter control practice on constructionExpand
Design Methodology for the Selection of Temporary Erosion and Sediment Control Practices Based on Regional Hydrological Conditions
AbstractConstruction-related activities typically disturb established vegetation, resulting in the potential for accelerated erosion. Because of the associated water quality impacts of constructionExpand
Installation Enhancements to Common Inlet Protection Practices Using Large-Scale Testing Techniques
Inlet protection practices (IPPs) are temporary erosion and sediment controls commonly used in active construction sites to help reduce off-site transport of sediment. The overall in-fieldExpand
Methodology for Evaluating Inlet Protection Practices Using Large-Scale Testing Techniques
AbstractMost roadway construction projects disturb existing vegetation exposing bare soil to environmental variables (i.e., precipitation, wind, and freeze and thaw) that cause erosion. Soil erodedExpand
