Turbidity Control Compliance Research and Training Center
Construction and Maintenance Practices
Environmental Process, Natural Resources
Research Idea Scope
This would build on the existing work at SECREF and expand to include the full array of turbidity control systems (passive, infiltration, active). New systems, which are being developed and marketed rapidly in response to the US EPA Effluent Limit Guideline, could be tested and compared under standard conditions.
Urgency and Payoff
A comprehensive training program would be developed to include planning and design, installation/maintenance/operation, and monitoring protocols.
