Wednesday, March 4th
@ 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST, 1-1.5hr*
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs

For decades channel design has typically relied on hard armor techniques. But today, with advances in erosion control products, testing methods, and channel design calculations, we can implement and accurately predict the success of reinforced vegetative solutions in high shear stress and velocity channels. Join Dr. Michael Robeson for a FREE webinar covering the process of designing a channel from start to finish with green alternatives, creating a more useful AND environmentally friendly green space.
