WEDA’s next webinar set for late March

Western Dredging Association (WEDA) is getting ready for their next webinar, Navigating the Water Treatment Design and Permitting Process.

The webinar ‘Navigating the Water Treatment Design and Permitting Process Development of a Guidance Manual’ is set for Friday, March 26, 2021, from 1 to 2 PM EST.

Presenters at the webinar include Peggy Derrick, Vice President EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC and Amber Wilson, Marketing Manager Infrastructure Alternatives, Inc.

Dredging of impacted sediments produces contact water, which requires treatment, to prevent contaminants from being returned to the water body.

This presentation will explore treated water discharge permitting considerations during the design and bid process, as well as associated cost drivers, to include the sharing and management of risk. The designer’s and contractor’s perspectives will be compared.

Data requirements, types of permits, how permits are obtained, and adaptive management strategies for maintaining permit compliance will be discussed.
