Paid Webinar - Streambank Protection Design: Hard & Soft Techniques & Application - Tuesday, February 4

Forester University is excited to announce that our first live webinar of the new year will be Streambank Protection Design: Hard & Soft Techniques & Application, taking place in two parts on February 4 and 6.

Join us and returning speaker Dr. David T. Williams to explore the "hard" and "soft" designs, techniques, and applications for streambank protection and how you can best select and apply them to your projects!

Course Description:
When restoring and protecting the banks of your streams, lakes, excavated channels, etc., there are plenty of vegetative plantings, soil bioengineering, and structural systems to choose from. The challenge comes in what to use when, where, and how.

We will start with a discussion on streambank erosion, including its contributing factors and key considerations. Williams will then walk us through the available streambank protection solutions and how you can determine those most ideal for specific project conditions. He will outline the applicable hydrology, hydraulics, and soil equations and how to incorporate these into your solution selection.

We will also take a look at design and installation best practices—including how you can combine "hard" and "soft" techniques for maximum protection and an enhanced habitat—and examine solution maintenance and performance assessment.

Topics that will be covered

Grade stabilization Flow changing techniques
Soil bioengineering Large woody material for habitat and bank protection
Streambank armor protection with riprap structures Articulating concrete block revetment systems
Vegetated rock walls Stream habitat enhancement using LUNKERS
Gully stabilization Small bridge abutments
Sheet pile walls in stream restoration and stabilization Streambank stabilization setback sizing
