Stream Restoration for Regulatory Agencies Workshop

Three-day Workshop
November 8-10, 2022
DoubleTree Asheville Biltmore
Asheville, North Carolina

This practical “hands-on” workshop will teach applications of natural stream restoration including site assessment, restoration alternative analysis, design plan review, permitting considerations, construction inspection, vegetation installation, and long-term monitoring.

Participants will learn to use design review checklists including the NCSU Stream Design Checklist and the EPA Natural Stream Design Review Checklist (EPA 843-K-12-006) for evaluating restoration design plans. Participants will visit several local restoration projects, including projects under construction and recently completed, to learn about restoration techniques applied for achieving ecological and land protection objectives.

Workshop topics integrated into classroom and field sessions will include hydrology and hydraulics, applied fluvial geomorphology, sediment transport, stream ecology, riparian vegetation, and environmental regulations. Discussions on policies and procedures to improve stream
restoration effectiveness will be encouraged.

Dave Penrose

President, Penrose Environmental LLC
Retired Faculty, NC State University and NC Division of Water Quality

I’ve worked as a stream ecologist for over 40 years and find that the science still fascinates me. I learn something about every stream or river that I work in. My professional goals primarily are about advancing the science of stream ecology, whether that’s as a contractor working on a restoration project or teaching aquatic insect taxonomy or ecology to students.
