If you read our blog post from a couple of weeks ago, you learned about some of BPC’s history in the dredging community and how we continue to be the voice of industry in San Francisco Bay. This includes providing the most up to date information on issues such as the movement of goods, water quality and supply, energy, and transportation infrastructure by way of electronic mailings, social media, committees, and Workshops and Expert Briefings. We brought together top leaders in the dredging community on November 9th to provide insight and updates on dredging and beneficial reuse in San Francisco Bay.
It was a packed room at the Port of Oakland as BPC held it’s 3rd annual Dredging and Beneficial Workshop. With a focus on practical solutions, the theme of this year’s Workshop was Bridging the Gap to Greater Beneficial Reuse. Our program included updates on current and potential beneficial reuse sites around San Francisco Bay, demonstrations on useful data and web tools for dredge operations, a presentation on the industry perspective on offloaders, and more. We also heard from the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission’s Executive Director on how BCDC’s lawsuit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers may impact dredging operations now and in the future.
BPC thanks the Dredging and Beneficial Reuse Committee for helping put together a great program, and to Haley & Aldrich for their generous Workshop sponsorship. We look forward to another successful Workshop in 2017.
