Safe Conveyance of Rare Storm Events

Safe Conveyance of Rare Storm Events

Two people were swept downstream and died during a catastrophic flash flood that struck Ellicott City, MD, on the evening of July 30, 2016. The infrastructure designed to carry stream flow and storm runoff along Tiber Run, which runs through the historic district, was unable to meet the demands of

Computer Simulations for Stormwater Management and Design

Computer Simulations for Stormwater Management and Design

Computer simulations for stormwater management and design make it possible to try out new ideas without the risk of disrupting communities or ecosystems, to evaluate how a watershed would respond to acts of nature or engineering. Jeff Shiner believes computer modeling gives engineers and decision makers a set of powerful

Foretelling a Post-Water Future

Foretelling a Post-Water Future

It seems like a passage from Latin American fiction—a surreal scenario in which citizens awaken to find their country dry, and a mustached general rationing their water. But for citizens of La Paz, Bolivia, this is not a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel—it is their reality.

For eleven years, scientists like Edson

Succession Planning: Keeping the Knowledge on Your Team

Succession Planning: Keeping the Knowledge on Your Team

Are you ready to keep things running if your top manager or operator left tomorrow?

Join Neal Bolton and Kasem Cornelius to learn how to develop and implement an effective succession plan at your organization to keep operations up-and-running, including: knowledge transfer and transition planning, system and materials development, training and

Improving Compaction, Equipment Utilization, and Daily Cover

Improving Compaction, Equipment Utilization, and Daily Cover

While most landfill managers agree that compaction is their top issue, little is done – beyond buying new equipment – to solve the problem. Good compaction requires a comprehensive approach of soil management, equipment optimization, and effective techniques.

Rogue Warriors of Water Operations: Keeping a Good Team from Going Bad

Rogue Warriors of Water Operations: Keeping a Good Team from Going Bad

Water operators are some of the most trusted, knowledgeable, and customer-facing people at a utility. And yet…operators are rarely heard or included in water management decisions. The result…miscommunication, rogue teams, and public safety hazards.

Join returning speaker Melanie Goetz to explore the pivotal (yet neglected) role of Operators in water management, and

Helping the Fish to Cross the Road

Helping the Fish to Cross the Road

In recent years, efforts to restore fish habitat in the US have gained momentum. It has been recognized that barriers to fish passage have suppressed populations of salmonid fish species such as coho, Chinook, steelhead, and others. These fish are important for many reasons. According to the Wild Salmon Center

Achieving Optimum Cell Geometry

Achieving Optimum Cell Geometry

The daily landfill cell is not only the heart of landfill operations, it’s also the biggest cost center. So…how can you select the most cost-effective and productive cell configuration and combinations for your site?

Join Neal Bolton for the second session in our Airspace Management Master Class exploring optimum cell geometry, factors,

Airspace Management Master Class

Airspace Management Master Class

More than 80% of landfill managers identify compaction and airspace management as their biggest operational issues. And it’s no wonder. After all, when your airspace is gone…so is the life of your landfill.

Join returning speaker Neal Bolton for a live and on-demand 3-session master class series exploring the latest techniques,
