Fish Return to Padden Creek
Last week we stopped by Padden Creek in Bellingham, Washington, to see if fish are using newly built habitat features near where the creek crosses SR-11—and they are! Check out the video to see how root wads, logs and other large woody materials protect young-of-the-year salmonid species like kokanee and Coho salmon. Across Washington State, […]
A Little Hope on Earth Day
It seems like every day we see new and more worrying headlines about our planet. The ocean is rising, species are dying, and it never seems like we’re doing enough to stop it. The conversation about climate change is almost always bleak, but maybe that’s part of the problem. It can be hard to take […]
Pipeline Webinar Series Launches
GeoEngineers is launching a series of webinars on pipeline construction beginning March 2. Staying connected with our clients and industry colleagues is more important, and more difficult, than ever. This online series will provide a place to learn and share pipeline best practices with like-minded professionals, spotlight various concepts and techniques and examine emerging strategies. […]
On Earth Day, Deal More Kindly with one Another
Carl Sagan and the Pale Blue Dot There is no better time than Earth Day to take a big step back from the minutia of our everyday lives and look at the larger picture. Why is this blue globe we call Earth so important? What is at stake here? Few have answered these questions as […]
Creating Marshes with Recycled Sediment
The coastal marshes of Louisiana and other states are a valuable resource. Sadly, in many areas they are slowly disappearing. By working together with ports and other industries, we can use river sediment to restore shrinking marshland.
HDD on the Mississippi: What is it?
Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) has a number of advantages over traditional pipeline crossing solutions. Learn the basics of this trenchless pipeline solution and how it’s used along the Mississippi river in this short educational video featuring Senior Civil Engineer Jamie Vincent.
HOME Habitat Modeling
GeoEngineers developed the HOME (Habitat Optimization Modeling of Ecosystems) model as a unique visualization tool to help us predict the quality of river habitat and ecosystems through time, based on proposed changes to the river system. This video shows the modeling software in action, and demonstrates the power the HOME approach can have on river […]
Drilling in the River: Geotechnical Investigations in the Mississippi and Beyond
Reliable drilling investigations are the cornerstone of geotechnical work. The soil data our drill teams gather is the basis of most of GeoEngineers’ geotechnical designs and recommendations. Even in ideal conditions, drilling operations can be challenging and unpredictable. But when we need soil information from below a river bottom it requires a team of exceptional […]
