Stilling basin design and operation for water quality by Richard Allen McLaughlin( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many construction projects involve the need to pump turbid water from borrow pits or other excavations into stilling basins or sediment bags prior to discharge. The design and operation of these basins needs to be optimized to provide the best water treatment prior to discharge. This project was designed to provide an evaluation of stilling basin designs and polyacrylamide (PAM) injection to minimize turbidity in discharged water. Of particular interest were difficult to settle Coastal Plain sediments containing highly charged clays (smectite/montmorillonite). The use of stilling basins did not result in significant reductions in turbidity in water pumped from the simulated borrow pits in these types of soils. These were not flocculated significantly by anionic PAM but can be flocculated by neutral or cationic PAM. In field tests, the flocculation process reduced turbidity regardless of the inclusion of either porous coir or rock baffles. However, at least one baffle is recommended when PAM is being used in case floating flocs are formed. Turbidity was reduced from the 500-800 NTU range to <30 NTU in many cases, especially for the cationic PAM. Similar reductions were achieved using a sediment bag. Toxicity tests indicate the relative PAM toxicity was cationic> anionic> neutral, and was not affected by turbidity. The neutral PAM was almost as effective as the cationic PAM and was even less toxic than the anionic PAM, so it may be an alternative where the anionic PAMs that are available will not work
Measures to reduce erosion and turbidity in construction site runoff by Richard Allen McLaughlin( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evaluation of polyacrylamides (PAM) for both erosion and turbidity control for construction sites was conducted in both the laboratory and the field. A laboratory screening was conduced for 11 PAMs on 13 sediment sources from North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) construction sites around North Carolina. In addition, a field test of two PAMs and two rates, with and without straw mulch and seeding, on a 2:1 fill slope, a 4:1 cut slope, and a 4:1 fill slope were performed
Evaluating systems to reduce road improvement impacts on mountain streams by Richard Allen McLaughlin( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sediment is the most common pollutant affecting North Carolinas waterways, impacting a range of aquatic organisms, reducing reservoir capacity, and hurting their aesthetic value. Construction activities, including roadway projects, are a significant contributor of state-wide sediment loading. The NC DOT program of widening and paving rural roads in the mountain region provided an opportunity to evaluate new types of roadside erosion control BMPs with the goal of protecting the particularly sensitive trout streams commonly found there. Two roadway paving projects were each divided into experimental sections installed with either (1) the standard DOT BMPs consisting of narrow sediment traps and rock checks, (2) the new fiber wattle check dams (consisting of a mix of straw wattles and coir logs) with 100 grams of granulated polyacrylamide (anionic PAM 705) added to each, or (3) the new wattle check dams alone (no PAM added)

Stilling basin design and operation for water quality : field testing by Richard Allen McLaughlin( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many construction projects involve the need to pump turbid water from borrow pits or other excavations into stilling basins or sediment bags prior to discharge. The design and operation of these basins needs to be optimized to provide the best water treatment prior to discharge. This project was designed to provide an evaluation of stilling basin designs and polyacrylamide (PAM) injection to minimize turbidity in discharged water. A Piedmont subsoil was mixed with water in a large holding pond which served as a source of the turbid water which was pumped into the stilling basin. Initial turbidities were in the range of 250-400 nephelometric turbidity units (NTU) in the source basin. Physical changes to the open basin, both with porous baffles and distribution along the bottom, significantly reduced turbidity or total suspended solids in the stilling basin, but the highest reduction was only 25%. Chemical treatment with PAM reduced turbidity and TSS by up to 88% and 84%, respectively, with little effect from the baffles or bottom spreader. Both types of PAM dosing systems worked well. There was some evidence that flocs formed after PAM treatment were intercepted by the dam slope. The porous baffle with 10% open pore space was significantly more effective than the baffle with 45% open pore space, but only when no PAM was added. The PAM treatments were highly effective and should be relatively simple and economical to use to reduce turbidity in pumped water
Evaluating sediment capture rates for different sediment basin designs by Richard Allen McLaughlin( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effectiveness of sediment control devices was studied on a large NC DOT project to determine the effects of different designs and conditions. Flow and sediment content of water exiting six different traps and basins were measured and the amount of sediment trapped estimated from periodic surveys. Sediment trapping and discharges strongly suggested that commonly used designs are relatively ineffective. The more efficient designs tended to retain more of the coarse fraction entering the basins than the less efficient designs. The improvement in sediment retention with the design improvements will significantly reduce the impacts of land disturbances from construction activity on water quality in nearby streams
