The ongoing loss of wetlands and other water resources poses a great concern. As such, federal, state, and local jurisdictions have enacted regulations to avoid or minimize these impacts and compensate for unavoidable losses. TRB is hosting a webinar on Thursday, November 5, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will discuss water resources on and near airports. These locations provide a particular challenge as they can potentially attract hazardous wildlife such as waterfowl and shorebirds, which pose hazards to aircraft operations. Successful wetland mitigation is often complex, time-consuming, and expensive. This webinar will provide clear and concise guidelines for airport staff, regulators, and consultants to address wetland mitigation at airports. Presenters will discuss the regulatory environment of wetland mitigation and present a process flowchart. They will also examine considerations for planning, engineering, design, and funding.
The webinar features research from ACRP Research Report 198: Wetland Mitigation--A Guidebook for Airports.
