Subject(s):stormwater pollution, erosion, sediment control, training, demonstration
Abstract:The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), and the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers joined in a partnership to develop a training and demonstration facility for erosion and sediment control and stormwater management. With funding from IDOT and in-kind contribution from the Illinois Land Improvement Contractors Association (ILICA), a facility was built on 5 acres of land at the UIUC South Farm. The formal name of this training, demonstration, and research facility is the Erosion and Sediment Control Research and Training Center (ESCRTC). The aim of the center is to provide training and perform research and evaluation of stormwater management, soil erosion control, and sediment control best management practices (BMPs). The center has a field research and demonstration site, along with a field classroom for training. The field site includes a large earthen berm, a pump house, a detention pond, and three channels of varying configurations.
