Fall Education Seminar Series – Erosion and Sediment Transport
10/10/2017 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Engineers, water resource and environmental professionals are invited to attend this full-day, hands-on seminar that offers the fundamentals of erosion and sediment transport. Upon completion of the seminar, you will be able to determine when and how erosion and sedimentation occur and estimate the magnitude of sediment transport. Attendees will also become familiar with applications in such fields as river engineering, stormwater management, roads, culvert design, dam removal, and fisheries. Erosion-related policies and practices in Michigan will also be discussed.
Lunch is included. Free parking.
