The Type A, B & D sediment basin design course has been developed to support the draft Appendix B (IECA, 2016) document and updated State Planning Policy (Qld). The 1 day course is focussed at practitioners responsible for the design and/or construction of sediment basins.
The program will provide attendees with valuable design,
construction and operational insight into sediment basins including the newly
adopted Type A & B basins. Aspects covered will include how to size
sediment basin varieties, how to select appropriate coagulants and flocculants,
how to maximise basin performance and efficiency and how to adapt to
constrained site conditions.
Attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of key design and operational parameters. The course will also provide guidance on construction and operation of Type A & B sediment basins, building on performance assessment and troubleshooting tools provided in the draft Appendix B document.
Each attendee will be supplied with a copy of a sediment basin sizing
tool as well as a jar testing kit to assist in selection and use of coagulants and flocculants. The presenters will provide insight based on experience
of designing and operating Type A, B & D basins to assist designers and operators in improving design and effectiveness of sediment basins whilst reducing risk and cost.
