Training Module for the Tailgate Test for Determining Appropriate Sediment-reducing Chemicals/Dosage

A training module for construction site field personnel is needed for a recently-completed project that developed a practical sediment control method for fine silt/clay sediment that is especially difficult to manage in runoff from construction sites. The Tailgate Test Kit quickly and easily identifies flocculants that reduce turbidity in construction stormwater discharge. The mobile test setup efficiently determines ...more »
