8:30 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Rutgers University  
There's no question that HEC-RAS, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Hydrologic Engineering Center River Analysis System program, is an incredibly powerful tool. However, it's also no secret that it can be overwhelming, challenging and, in the hands of an inexperienced user, the end result could be numerical instability and severely flawed analyses. Can you afford that outcome on your projects? To help you make sense of HEC-RAS, we've recruited Joe Skupien, one of the most highly rated instructors in hydrology and hydraulics, to teach this 3-day hands-on training class. He will provide a comprehensive overview of the steady flow capabilities of the current version (V5.0.1) of HEC-RAS.  More information: http://www.cpe.rutgers.edu/courses/current/ew0401ca.html

Center for Environmental & Life Sciences Bldg.

Given a range in environmental settings (from ditches to urbanized estuaries), students will be taught how to select the proper remedial method (e.g., capping, dredging, bank stabilization) based on the source of the contaminant, practicability, cost, intrusiveness, and long-term effectiveness. Technical aspects will include remedial design, specification of materials and equipment, and coordinating with contractors. Case studies will be used to illustrate how the responsible party selected the appropriate remedy, coordinated with regulatory agencies (e.g., NJDEP, USEPA, USFWS), and monitored long-term effectiveness
