    USSD Workshop Description

    The Workshop will bring together design and construction experts from the U.S. and Canada and is aimed at both seasoned professionals and those in the earlier stages of their careers. The two-day workshop will include presentations by experts as well as breakout groups and discussion. Following the Wednesday morning Plenary Session, breakouts will feature two tracks:

    • Track A: Investigation, Design, Construction, Operations
    • Track B: Getting to Construction – studies and permits for environmentally sustainable dams in Alaska. Track B will include a one-day special training session. On Thursday, Dr. Joerg Hartmann will lead a training session on the International Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol. This is the first time this topic has been presented in the U.S. Dr. Hartmann was part of the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Forum, which developed the Protocol, and he is now an accredited lead assessor and has applied the Protocol on more than 20 hydropower projects worldwide. This leading-edge training session is not to be missed.
