Center for Watershed Protection webcast "Stream Restoration: Where Are We Now?" - Wednesday, November 15 (10:00am - 11:30am)

Since 2009, the Center for Watershed Protection has been providing high quality webcasts for stormwater and watershed professionals. Since we began, we estimate that more than 19,000 professionals have participated in the Center’s webcasts. Webcasts are hosted through Adobe Connect and run 1.5 hours long.

 

For the sixth webcast of our 2017 series, we’ll be focusing on Stream Restoration: Where Are We Now? 

 

Description:

Stream restoration has been used for over two decades for various objectives, including  mitigation and pollutant reduction requirements for TMDL compliance. The industry has had its critics who have argued that restoration should be more focused in the watershed and that scientific evidence of improvements to stream function is lacking. Even within the stream restoration community there has  been vastly different approaches to stream restoration design and a polarization among stream restoration designers who have taken different sides on the academic debate surrounding stream channel evolution and its role in the design process. Today, the fact that thousands of stream restoration practices have been installed speaks to its success as one of the primary tools used to meet water quality goals. This webcast will feature 4 of the nation’s leading stream restoration experts who will address a series of questions about the state of the art of stream restoration and where they see its future direction. The webcast will follow a similar format to the recently published Watershed Science Bulletin article “Ask the Experts: Perspectives on the primary drivers of stream restoration, design approaches and techniques and restoration potential.”
