2017 Dredger of the Year Award by WEDA

Western Dredging Association (WEDA) recently presented the 2017 Annual Dredger of the Year Award to Anthony Binsfeld in recognition of his life’s work in advancing the dredging industry.

During its annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, WEDA recognized Dr. Donald Hayes, PE, BCEE, for his outstanding contributions to the dredging community and to the Western Dredging Association.

Through his role as Professor and Department Chair of the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Construction, Dr. Hayes supports the dredging community in developing improved dredging technologies and dredged material management techniques.

Of immeasurable value to the dredging industry, Dr. Hayes’s research has focused upon efficiencies of technologies for both navigation and environmental dredging, sustainable management of dredged material including contaminated sediments, and coastal restoration and mitigation.

Dr. Hayes is an active member of the WEDA Board of Directors. He is a member of the Board of Directors’ Technical Papers Committee, the Training and Certification Committee, and the Awards Committee. Dr. Hayes has also been a long-standing contributing member of the WEDA Environmental Commission.

He is well known for WEDA short courses and delivering lectures during the day before WEDA conferences. He also supports the dredging community as a lecturer at the annual Dredging Short Course at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas.
