D’Olive Watershed Restoration Technical Workshop
On February 16 & 17, 2016, the MBNEP hosted a D’Olive Watershed Restoration Technical Workshop at 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center.  All five engineering firms and both construction contracting firms involved in D’Olive Watershed restorations; nationally-recognized stream restoration specialists Greg Jennings, Dave Bidelspach, and Mike Geenan; hydrologist John Curry; sediment-loading expert Marlon Cook; Auburn University scientists and extension specialists, and municipal and MBNEP staffs shared strategies, techniques, lessons learned, and other trade secrets to facilitate the best project implementation possible in this challenging environment. It was an extraordinary event that benefited practitioners and degraded streams across coastal Alabama and beyond.
