Erosion and Sediment Control for Waste Landfills (Vol 2B of the Blue Book)

This one day course presents an opportunity to gain valuable skills outlined in volume 2B of the Blue Book, recently published by the Department of Environment and Climate Change. This course focuses specifically on the construction, operation and rehabilitation of waste landfill sites and looks at the common challenges and problems faced on such sites. It provides practical advice on erosion and sediment controls for typical waste landfill projects where significant and long-term land disturbances occur.

The course provides practical advice and techniques for various scales of waste management facilities as well as site planning, using Erosion and Sediment Control Plans and proper inspection and maintenance.  The course is designed for professionals designing, managing or working at waste management facilities, who have an existing knowledge of the fundamentals of erosion and sediment control.
