Stream Smart Phase II is a field oriented technical workshop extension of the principles of Stream Smart de-sign for ecological road crossings. Participants will learn how to assess a road/stream crossing, gathering the information needed to develop a conceptual design for a replacement open bottom stream crossing.

Information gathered will include: a surveyed longitudinal profile, gradient, riffle/pool spacing, bankfull width measurements, cross sectional transects of a reference reach, and stream substrate composition.

Following the “hands on” field portion of the workshop, participants will enter data and interpret the infor-mation. The end result will be a conceptual preliminary design for a Stream Smart crossing replacement struc-ture. Stream Smart workshops are designed to provide training for professionals responsible for road-stream crossings. Participants in this workshop will receive continuing education credits for the Maine Department of Environmental Protection’s Voluntary Contractor Certification Program.

Online Registration at Workshops are offered in four different locations in Maine—content is the same for all workshops. For more information contact Beth Pauls at or 207-781-2330 x273
