November 12 - 13, 2014: Midwest Hydro Users Group--Fall Regional Meeting
The Midwest Hydro Users Group will be holding their annual fall regional meeting, an owners-only meeting, and a full membership meeting. Additional meeting information:
December 9 - 11, 2014: Renewable Energy World Conference & Expo North America 2014 Conference
The Renewable Energy World Conference & Expo North America gathers and exchanges information about the latest in technology, opportunities, and funding in today's changing world. The conference is during Power Generation Week, providing networking opportunities with 20,000+ professionals and key decisionmakers.
February 17 - 19, 2015: The Northwest Hydroelectric Association (NWHA)�Workshops, Tour, Annual Conference, and Seminar
NWHA provides a regional voice for the hydropower industry, representing the needs of its membership since 1981. NWHA is dedicated to the promotion of the region�s waterpower as a clean efficient energy, while protecting the fisheries and environmental quality that characterize the Northwest Region. The NWHA technical workshops and seminars offer the engineers, electricians, mechanics, operators, and technicians servicing the hydroelectric industry a forum to discuss and learn about the arts and issues of their work, which is fundamental to the Northwest Region quality of life.
June 10, 2014: Corrosion Mitigation of Gates--Webinar Training
Jessica Torrey in Reclamation's Technical Service Center presented information on design, installation, maintenance, and testing of corrosion mitigation for gates. Additionally, Jessica presented an introduction to the Mobile Information Collection Application (MICA). This is an app for tablets, which was developed by the U.S. Corps of Engineers and has been tailored for field data collection of cathodic protection systems. The field test and integration of this app into Reclamation is funded through Reclamation's Science and Technology Program.
Reclamatio nhosted a U.S. Geological Survey representative who described the need for data stewardship and illustrate best practices. Douglas Clark in Reclamation's Technical Service Center also presented.
The training outlines the hydrologic, seismic, geotechnical, electrical, mechanical, and structural considerations of dam safety as well as operation, maintenance, surveillance, and emergency preparedness. Presentations, case histories, and a walk-through abbreviated examination will be used to present the multidiscipline approach to an effective dam safety program.
In conjunction with Reclamation's Upper Colorado Region, Technical Service Center, and Research and Development Office, Professor Aaron Wolf from Oregon State University has developed a training course on managing water conflict. Professor Wolf will discuss the salient elements of this training course in his presentation. See the video.
Reclamation hosted representatives from the U.S. Geological Survey's National Unmanned Aerial Systems Project Office and the Bureau of Land Management to discuss past accomplishments, present plans, and future prospects for the use of unmanned aerial systems within the U.S. Department of the Interior.
