Surface Water - Webinar Series


Explore the ins and outs of surface water from the first rain drops to stream restoration!

Join industry expert and former two-time IECA president, Dr. David T. Williams, for our comprehensive 4-part webinar series exploring surface water behavior, effects, and techniques.

We'll start with a look at rainfall and runoff (hydrology) and move on to an overview of the science concerned with the mechanical influence of water flow (hydraulics). We’ll then examine how water changes the local river environment (fluvial geomorphology), and finally, discuss how all of these concepts are applied to stream restoration.

Offering an end-to-end look at surface water, this series is a great resource for professionals entering or working within the water, erosion control, and riverine environments who are interested in brushing up on the fundamentals, exploring the techniques available, and discussing real-world application best practices.

This webinar series consists of eight 1.5-2 hour live and on-demand presentations and Q&A sessions (two sessions per topic, 12 PDHs / 1.2 CEU total) focusing on the following topics.

All sessions are available live and on-demand so you may attend at your leisure, and are accompanied by a quiz to test your skills. Learning on your own at home online, or with a group, Forester University's Surface Water Webinar Series is designed as an interactive experience with the leading expert in the field.
