Portsmouth Hosts Workshop on Living Shoreline Techniques

A workshop for engineers, consultants, designers and landscape architects interested in incorporating green infrastructure and living shoreline techniques into coastal projects will take place on Thursday, October 26, 2017, at the Portsmouth Public Library in Portsmouth, NH.

Living shoreline projects have started to appear in many New England tidal environments, but the Northeast region lags behind the Mid-Atlantic and Gulf Coast states when it comes to implementation of living shoreline stabilization projects.

Through research and pilot projects, siting and designing living shoreline stabilization projects in different Northeastern coastal environments is becoming easier.

The workshop, hosted by the Northeast Regional Resilience & Living Shoreline Project with funds from the NOAA Office for Coastal Management, includes a field trip visit to Portsmouth’s newest living shoreline site at Cutts Cove and discussion with the designers of that project.

Workshop objectives:

  • Learn beyond the basics about LS approaches for tidal erosion control, habitat restoration and enhancement, and flood mitigation;
  • Understand differences between LS stabilization and traditional, hard shoreline stabilization;
  • Obtain tools and strategies for executing a successful LS project;
  • Identify challenges and next steps to encourage design and implementation of LS projects on public and private properties.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
