The Marine Recreation Association is sponsoring a regional training seminar covering the complicated and complex planning, permitting and project management issues associated with marine dredging projects in coastal and inland waters.

Dredging, and obtaining dredging entitlements, can be overwhelming without an understanding of the processes and regulations involved.

The seminar will be presented by Dr. Joshua Burnam and Anchor QEA team members on June 29 from 9 a.m. to noon at Sierra Point Yacht Club in Brisbane, Calif.

Burnam is a partner and principal environmental planner at Anchor QEA, specializing in all aspects of planning, permitting and project management of waterfront construction and dredging on the West Coast.

Prior to joining Anchor QEA he was a senior regulatory project manager and regional subject matter expert on dredging for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ regulatory program.

Topics of the seminar will include:

  • Determining dredging needs, feasibility and planning parameters
  • Dredge material sampling, analysis and disposal options
  • Regulatory agency entitlement and permitting requirements
  • Preparing your facility and users for the dredging activity
  • Assessing dredging bids and payment concepts
  • Dredging and other marine construction project management

After the seminar there may be an opportunity to observe the active dredging project at Brisbane Marina.
