EBC Dam Management Program: New Perspectives in Dam Removal, Sediment Management and Stream Restoration

March 4, 2014 @ 7:30 am – 12:00 pm

The evolution of the dam removal projects in Massachusetts is changing every day. Changes in regulatory requirements, possible funding sources, and the construction approaches are constantly being tweaked and updated. It seems that the dam removal practitioners are responding to the lessons learned from each dam that is removed. This EBC program is an update of some of those developments in the current dam removal landscape. The topics that will be covered will include the new regulatory attitudes on sediment management, the available funding and grant sources for dam removal, a contractor’s perspective on dam removal costs and water control options, and a case study of an emergency dam removal project in Massachusetts.
Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
