Waterways are dynamic environments. Strong hydraulic engineering solutions are needed to create resilient infrastructures that minimize environmental impact, control costs, and provide long-term performance. On July 14, Maccaferri will host  an exclusive breakfast seminar (7:30 am – 11:00 am) in Gaithersburg, Maryland focused on the application and design of hydraulic solutions.
The seminar is free and worth 3 PDHs. The seminar is expected to be especially impactful for Maryland, Virginia, and DC-based engineers.

Expert instruction will include one of the field’s leading voices on the intersection between infrastructure and hydraulic engineering environments, Jerry DiMaggio, PE, D.GE. DiMaggio is a principal civil engineer at Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA) and a retired Principal Bridge Engineer and National Program Manager of Geotechnical/Foundation Engineering with the U.S. DOT/FHWA.


The agenda for the seminar:

  • 7:30 – 8:00 Breakfast
  • 8:00 – 8:30 Introduction to Hydraulic Works
  • 8:30 – 9:15 Jerry DiMaggio, P.E., D.GE – Hydraulic considerations for infrastructure resiliency
  • 9:15 – 9:30 Break
  • 9:30 – 10:30 Longitudinal Works
  • 10:30 – 11:00   Soil Bio-Engineering

Attendees will learn how to consider the durability of hydraulic engineering solutions and how they can be designed to complement the environment. Attendees will learn how various engineered products coexist with vegetation to mutually strengthen the waterway environment and infrastructure. Included in the discussion will be how soil bio-engineering, geosynthetics, gabion structures, and various reinforcement and erosion control solutions interact for optimal hydraulic engineering designs.
The seminar is also intended to provide a networking opportunities for agencies, engineers, and other local professionals.
Space at this gathering is limited, please register now.
