The Lighter Side of Geomembranes, by Chris Kelsey, Lighter colored geomembranes provide some important advantages in a large installation. Whether exposed only during the installation process or serving as an exposed liner, reflective geomembranes offer a number of practical benefits that can lead to long-term performance advantages.
Low Impact Development
Anne Arundel County Central Utility Wetland and Stream Restoration Project, by Erik Michelsen, A treatment train using low impact development techniques involved a series of Regenerative Stormwater Conveyance (RSC) systems that function as filtering practices (combining principles of sand filters and bioretention areas), grass swales, and retention ponds to meet storm water management requirements for water quality, recharge, and channel protection volume.
Reduced Flooding & Improved Water Quality Result of Collaborative Effort, by Benjamin Craddock, PE & Benjamin Ehrhart, PE, CFM, Costly damages from the flooding creek on a regular basis led to a collaborative restoration project in one of the most critical areas. 2,500 cubic yards of accumulated sediment were removed from the floodplain with the goal to provide additional flood storage, lower the local flood stage, and reduce deposition of sediment under the bridges.
Gabion Face MSE Walls Meet Tough Challenges to Stabilize Slope, A series of gabion face MSE walls were built to mitigate slope movement and protect the utilities at a City owned facility in Texas. This was a green solution for Reinforced Soil Slopes (RSS) in very challenging soils, settlements, steep slopes and the presence of underground water.
Closing an Old Disposal Site with an Exposed Geomembrane Cover, by Gary Kolbasuk, A cover system comprised of a durable exposed geomembrane would be used for final closure of an industrial disposal site, but attempts to work on the site resulted in movement and exposure of some of the waste, presenting safety issues for crews evaluating the site.
Taking it Back to the Basics: Stormwater Management Pond Parts, by J. Wesley Allen, When people outside of the water quality management industry read an inspection report or are told that they have a clogged outlet structure or a separated inlet pipe, they may have no idea what that is or how it could impact their pond or BMP. Taking the time to educate a client on the fundamentals of storwmater management is the first step to developing the type of relationship required to implement a successful storwmater maintenance or repair program.
Rosewood Beach Renovation, by Elizabeth Gogola, The transformation of an excologically sensitive area along Chicago's North Shore includes the creation of three large beach coves, daylighting the ravine stream, the addition of native plantings, bluff restoration and the formation of low-profile stone breakwaters.
Water Management Systems
Overcoming Water Treatment Challenges: Port of Ridgefield Development, by Eric Bradley & John Meland, The cleanup of contaminated sediment along the shore of Lake River included removing pilings and debris and dredging the most contaminated sediments. In order to meet permit requirements, a system was needed to remove environmental contaminants and turbidity from the water before returning it to the environment on this $4.4 million portion of the project.
