LAEP Symposium
The 11th Annual Berkeley River Restoration Symposium
Saturday, 12/05/15 9:00am – 1:00pm
112 Wurster Hall

The symposium begins with a keynote talk by Jeff Haltiner,a recently retired Senior Vice President of ESA-PWA, with four decades of experience designing stream and wetland restoration projects throughout California. Urban stream restoration has been at the heart of the movement to “bring nature back to the city”. Initial efforts focused on “naturalizing” short reaches of these highly degraded channels, while the current generation of projects looks to restore some channel dynamics. But new stormwater management regulations offer the opportunity to restore key watershed processes (flow regime, water-quality) to support our restored stream channels over the next century.
