A webinar by Peter Hanrahan on The Impact of Geosynthetics on Site Design will take place on October 12, 2022 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. ET. 1 PDH credit is available and you can register here.
Up until midway through the 20th century, roadway designers, site managers and installers had few options available for soil stabilization. Now, less than a century later, site planners have access to a wide range of technology to assist with multiple tools with soil stability, load support, drainage, soil separation and more. A wide variety of geosynthetic products have proven valuable in producing traffic-bearing surfaces that last longer, are less expensive to build, and are easier to maintain. Those who participate in this session can expect to be brought up to date on the latest innovations in this rapidly growing industry.
Peter Hanrahan is a certified professional in erosion and sediment control, and has more than 43 years of industry experience. In addition to presentations in Taiwan, Canada and the Dominican Republic, he has also presented at the national level for many organizations, including the International Erosion Control Association, Land Improvement Contractors of America, the Geotechnical Fabrics Institute, the National Working Waterfront Network, and the American Water Works Association. His articles have been published in many magazines, including Erosion Control, Land & Water, Geosynthetics, and Landscape Architect & Specifier News.
Hanrahan has also assisted with the development of erosion control standards with the Illinois Tollway Authority, and the State Departments of Transportation in New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, and Illinois. He has also assisted with the updating and development of erosion control handbooks for the State of Rhode Island, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, and the Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions.
