The Corps of Engineers Detroit District will host a technical workshop on October 18, 2011, to introduce this new tool that can be used to estimate the stability of maintained channels and ditches in clay soils. The workshop will be held at the Minnesota Pollution Control Offices, located at 525 S. Lake Ave, #400, Duluth, MN 55802, from 1:00 3:00 PM. Organizations interested in learning to use the Channel Stability Tool and providing constructive feedback are invited to participate in this technical workshop.
The tool incorporates the effects of cohesive soils, vegetation, and hydraulic scour. Representatives from the Corps of Engineers Detroit District will be demonstrating the tool and soliciting feedback on the user interface in order to ensure that the final product is useful to stakeholders. The final version of the tool, incorporating suggestions gathered during the October 18 meeting, will be released later this fall.
