Dredging & Marine Construction

WEDA To Host Virtual Dredging Summit

The Western Dredging Association (WEDA) will hold its annual Dredging Summit June 15-17, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. daily. This year, the event will be held virtually via Zoom conference.

The summit will feature a wide range of experts from throughout the dredging world presenting on topics like the beneficial use of dredged material, sediment sampling and remediation, and innovative approaches to dredging. A pair of sessions will focus on dredging needs in Texas, with one focused on regional sediment management and the other on sediment needs in coastal areas. There will also be panel discussions focused on both environmental issues and safety, with a session looking at dredging crew operations and lasting impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Attendees will qualify for 12 professional development hours, with certificates issued upon request.

The summit will also feature a lineup of awards, including WEDA’s Environmental Excellence Awards, Safety Excellence Awards, the Young Profession of the Year Award and the Anchor QEA Young Author Award, along with a pair of paper awards.
