8:00 AM Full Depth Reclamation of Roads with CementDoug Smith, Pavement Applications Director KY, Great Lakes Cement Promotional Council

Full-depth reclamation (FDR) with cement is a stabilizing pavement solution in which a deteriorated asphalt pavement, chip seal or gravel road and the underlying base materials are pulverized then mixed with cement and water to form a cement-treated stabilized base course. An FDR road can be completed with either an asphalt, chip seal or concrete surface layer.

1:00 PM The Future of Watershed Protection and The Increased Opportunities for Engineers—Keith Shepherd, Upper Tradewater River Conservancy District

In the late 1950’s, the U. S. Congress passed the Watershed Protection Act, which authorized local  soil and water conservation districts to form taxing entities in the form of Watershed Conservation Districts. Initially, these Watershed Districts worked closely with the USDA Natural Resources and Conservation Service to procure the land, engineer the structures, and oversee the construction of watershed lakes. Funding for construction was made as a Congressional appropriation and was virtually a rubber stamp process. Changes in science and a general societal move towards environmentalism have created a landscape where the initial rules of the game have changed. It has been determined by those who have the ability to change the rules, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Kentucky Division of Water, that watershed impoundments are bad and free flowing streams are good.  Additionally, the USDA has been poorly funded by the U.S. Congress and has put watershed protection far behind other fiscal priorities. Now, Watershed Protection Districts are on their own to imagine, engineer and develop forms of storm water control that fall within the current (rules of the game) guidelines of state and federal agencies. Watershed Conservation Districts will increasingly seek the need of independent engineers to assist in increasing the level of flood protection on their watersheds.
