HydroVision International 2011

HydroVision International promises to be the year’s largest gathering of hydro professionals worldwide, taking place July 19-22 in Sacramento. Stillwater specializes in providing water resources planning services to hydropower companies and has built a reputation for conducting innovative and informative studies to meet our client’s needs. For this year’s conference, Principal and Senior Fisheries Biologist Scott Wilcox will be a part of a panel discussion (Session 7G) examining methods used to determine appropriate instream flows. Scott has been working on hydro projects and conducting instream flow studies for much of his 30-year career.

Dr. Yantao Cui, Senior Hydraulic Engineer, will be part of a panel discussion (Session 2G) exploring sediment transport and channel forming processes. Yantao is a world-renown sediment transport modeler, and has developed a number of project-specific models to support hydro project operations. And, with a perspective on emerging technologies, Principal and Senior Wildlife Biologist Christine Champe (along with co-author Keith Kirkendall of NMFS) will be presenting a poster (Session 2K) on “Scientific approaches for evaluating the environmental effects of hydrokinetic projects.”

From licensing to compliance to decommissioning, Stillwater’s ecologists, biologists, scientists, and engineers are ready to help you with the myriad of environmental issues associated with hydro projects. To learn more about our hydro services, click here.
