Webcast: Living Shorelines - Types, Tools, and Techniques


EPA – May 14, 2014

EPA's Watershed Academy free webcast on Living Shorelines - Types, Tools, and Techniques will be held on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. Eastern. Join EPA for a webcast on living shorelines - erosion control practices that protect the natural structure and function of shorelines through strategic placement of materials including native plants, sand, and stone. Unlike traditional erosion control structures (such as bulkheads and seawalls), living shorelines can stabilize shorelines while maintaining natural processes and land-water connections that are important for wildlife and clean water. This webcast will introduce living shoreline projects and explain the values of such projects and their implementation methodologies. Important points to be covered include: site selection criteria, appropriate techniques for differing energy regimes, innovative practices, and implementation tools.

Webinar: An overview of water/energy issues from national and federal perspectives


Center for Climate and Energy Solutions – May 8, 2014

Water for Energy and Energy for Water: Challenges and Opportunities for Utilities is a series of three webinars sponsored by the Association for Metropolitan Water Agencies, the Water Information Sharing and Analysis Center, and the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions intended to help utility managers address issues across the water-energy nexus.

Webinar 1 – An overview of water/energy issues from national and federal perspectives will be held on May 8, 2 p.m.–3 p.m. ET. Dr. Craig Zamuda from the Department of Energy (DOE) will present key findings from DOE’s recently released water/energy nexus report, attempting to distill some of the key issues and risks of which water and electric utilities should be aware. Dr. Kristen Averyt, Associate Director for Science for the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences and Director of the Western Water Assessment at the University of Colorado, will present her research regarding water-energy challenges that exist currently and are on the horizon.

Webinar 2 - Partnerships between water and energy utilities to address water/energy challenges. Date and speakers TBD

Webinar 3: Effective stakeholder engagement on water and energy issues. Date and speakers TBD.

Webinar/Workshops: 2014 Waters of the US


The Swamp School – May 6, and May 15, 2014

On March 25, 2014 the Obama administration unveiled a regulatory proposal that brings nearly all rivers, streams and creeks under the protection of the Clean Water Act and adds clarity on which wetlands would receive protection. This 371 page proposal significantly changes the regulatory landscape of what had become known as waters of the US. Specifically, this rule is aimed at clarifying which streams, creeks, wetland, bogs, swamps and marshes fall under federal jurisdiction of the Clean Water Act following two very confusing Supreme Court “decisions” in 2001 and 2006 that left both industry and agencies in a regulatory paradox. The Swamp School has prepared a complete clear and concise analysis of these new regulations. They are offering this in a series of online and interactive webinar workshops. They will be holding this workshop at three different times and dates to make is easy for you to attend. This webinar/workshop will be held on May 6, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. EDT; and on May 15, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. EDT. For more information, click here.

Webinar: USGS: The National ED Elevation Program


USGS – April 29, 2014

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) will hold a webinar on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 from 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m CDT on A Conversation with the USGS: The National 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). The United States Geological Survey is embarking on the most ambitious 3D Mapping program ever undertaken within the United States.  The national 3D elevation program (3DEP) is designed to provide the first high resolution elevation data coverage for the country much as the USGS digital orthophoto program did for imagery in the 1990s.  This initiative is being developed by the USGS to respond to the growing need for high-quality topographic data and other three-dimensional representations of the Nation's natural and constructed features. This topic will be presented by Ms. Vicki Lukas of USGS.  Ms. Lukas has more than 20 years of experience as a geographer with the U.S. Geological Survey.  As Chief of the Topographic Data Services Team for the National Geospatial Program, she oversees the 3D Elevation Program, the National Hydrography Dataset and associated activities. The presentation will be followed with a question and answer session. To register for this webinar, click here.

 
Free Webinar on Water Quality Mobile Website "How's My Waterway"


U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – April 23, 2014

EPA will be hosting a free webinar on April 23, 2014 from 1:00pm- 2:00pm Eastern Time to detail the new enhancements to How's My Waterway, a mobile friendly website that enables users to easily access water quality information for their local lakes, rivers, and streams. The mobile friendly website has proven popular with the general public and more technical users alike because of its plain-English approach, map and list formats, simple design, and rapid retrieval of local-scale information. The enhanced version includes, among other things, drinking water source protection areas, watershed information, information on local permits that limit pollutant discharges, and National fish habitat partnerships to restore waterways to protect and improve fish habitats. EPA water scientist Doug Norton, who developed How's My Waterway, will discuss the new enhancements and provide practical examples of how the tool can be used by various audiences.For more information, click here.

Webinar: Climate Change and Extreme Weather: historical trends and future forecasts


The Ohio State University – April 24, 2014

The Ohio State University will hold a webinar on Climate Change and Extreme Weather: historical trends and future forecasts on April 24, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. -1:00 p.m. ET. Severe weather has plagued all parts of the US, including the Great Lakes, over the past decade, from floods to droughts, from blizzards to heavy thunderstorms, and from freezing cold to extreme heat. What has been causing such events? What types of weather should we expect to see in the future? For more information and to register, click here.

 
Webinar: Climate-Smart Restoration in the Great Lakes: Design, Implementation and Case Studies


National Wildlife Federation and NOAA – April 3, 2014

The National Wildlife Federation and NOAA invite you to join this webinar, Climate-Smart Restoration in the Great Lakes: Design, Implementation and Case Studies, which will be held on April 3, 2014 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. EDT. This webinar will focus on using restoration projects as case studies to show how to determine the vulnerability of projects to potential climate change impacts as well as provide a suite of potential adaptation options to address those vulnerabilities. Although developed specifically for climate smart restoration in the Great Lakes, the general procedures should have broader applicability in other regions and can inform other coastal restoration projects.
