ELI is hosting a series of webinars on the policy, practice, and science of stream compensatory mitigation. Webinar topics are based on the findings and recommendations of the 2017 report Stream Mitigation: Science, Policy, and Practice and selected in coordination with an Advisory Committee of stream mitigation experts. The series will cover a range of issues from assessing stream functions and conditions to restoration approaches and long-term success of compensation projects. This ten-part series is funded by an EPA Wetland Program Development Grant.

Stream Compensatory Mitigation Webinar Series: Defining and Using Reference

One of the fundamental issues to address in the development of any functional assessment methodology is the definition of reference (e.g. the use of a single or small number of reference sites picked for that project, use of upstream/downstream segments, use of large regional/statewide datasets). This webinar will include presentations on the different approaches to reference used and considerations for each.

Panelists include:
Art Parola, Director - University of Louisville Stream Institute; Principal - Riverine Solutions, LLC
Alan Herlihy, Professor – Oregon State University Department of Fisheries and Wildlife
Barbara Doll, Extension Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist – NC State University Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering

Materials will be posted when they become available...
