Stream Restoration Basics & Techniques


This course is the fourth installment in our Surface Water Webinar Series—others include “Hydrology 101,” “Hydraulics 101,” and “Fluvial Geomorphology 101.” Sign up now for all four and save nearly 10% while earning 8 PDH / 0.8 CEU!

Between balancing the complex physical and biological elements and attaining needed improvements, stream restoration can be challenging.

Join two-time former IECA President and returning speaker Dr. David T. Williams to brush up on your stream restoration basics! In this live, educational, two-part webinar, we will discuss the basic concepts, computations, roles, and techniques of a successful stream restoration project and how you can put this into action on your team.

Whether you are new to the industry or just simply need a refresher, these sessions will provide a complete overview of the stream restoration process—from development to design. We will address the major stream restoration design areas and the associated tools, computations, and confirmations, including:

  • •Fluvial Geomorphology: The study of stream patterns (meandering, braided, etc.), physical features of meanders, channel evolution, floodplain features, and stream classification
  • Hydrology: Determining appropriate design discharge for main channel geometric design and overbanks areas
  • Hydraulics and Channel Dimensions: Development of the main channel width, depth, and slope
  • Back Check of Design: Confirming that the resulting hydraulics and flow duration meet all objectives

We will also consider the key elements of successful stream restoration projects and team development, outlining the best practices for developing timelines and project objectives and for identifying design team disciplines and expertise requirements. Williams will teach you how to best interweave these elements in your planning to produce a sound, successful, and sustainable stream restoration project!
