Geosyntec to Present Latest Approaches at Dredging 2012

Members of the Geosyntec team will attend and present technical sessions at the Dredging 2012 conference, set for October 22-25 in San Diego, California.

The specialty forum on dredging and dredge material disposal is expected to draw hundreds of engineers, scientists, and thought leaders from the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.

The four-day conference focusing on dredging best practices and innovation from around the world is presented by the United States section of the World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure (PIANC US) and the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (COPRI ASCE).
