I know that many of you have been following our Forester University webinars, and you may already know about these two, but I’m mentioning them here because if you’re in the field of erosion and sediment control, these are too good to miss. Two of the most respected professionals in the stormwater and ESC fields have upcoming online classes:
Voodoo Hydrology— Pitfalls of Urban Hydrology Methods & What You Need to Know
Presenter: Andy Reese, P.E., LEED AP, Vice President, AMEC Environment & Infrastructure
Thurs., Feb. 21st @ 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PST, 1-1.5hrs
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs
Understand your urban hydrology! Join Andy Reese, PE, LEED AP, as he exposes the black box of urban hydrology and explores its common stormwater methodologies. In this webinar, Andy will, with his normal humor, “lay bare” the key elements, assumptions, and most common misuses of popular urban stormwater methodologies, as well recommendations for proper application of each.
You can find the full description here.
You can also find Andy’s related article, “Voodoo Hydrology,” which was published in the July/August issue of Stormwater magazine, here. It’s one of our most widely cited articles, and well worth reading before the webinar (or even if you don’t take the webinar).
10 Steps to Construction Site Stormwater Compliance
Presenter: Jennifer Hildebrand, MBA, CPESC, CPSWQ, Environmental Compliance Group Manager, WSB & Associates, Inc.
Wed., Feb. 27th @ 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PST, 1-1.5hrs
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEU
Manage your runoff and still remain profitable! Join author Jennifer Hildebrand to explore and demystify the stormwater regulations affecting construction projects, and how you can keep compliant. Working from her acclaimed manual, Straight Talk: Strategies for Environmental Compliance, Hildebrand will discuss and outline in this webinar the top ten effective strategies for maintaining an environmentally compliant project while keeping a risk-assessment and profit-focused mindset.

Jennifer’s book, Straight Talk, is available here.
And, if there are Forester University courses you wanted to take but missed, you can now watch them on demand. A library of webcasts—recordings of previous live webinars—is available here. You earn professional development credits (PDHs or CEUs) for these just as you do for the live webinars.
