Dam and Weir Removal Workshop

Dam and Weir Removal Workshop

Aston University, Birmingham, United Kingdom

Start date: 25th September 2017 @ 9am

End Date: 26th September 2017 @ 5pm

You are invited to the 2nd Dam Removal Europe Workshop. It is being hosted in the UK’s second city of Birmingham right in the centre of England with good transport links from all UK regions. The workshop is in the city centre at Aston Business School. For this occasion, the Dam Removal Partnership is working The Severn Rivers Trust and the Environment Agency who have helped to organise an exciting programme of talks with reference to the particular challenges of dam removal in the urban environment.

The workshop starts with a plenary session on the challenges of dam removals in the urban environment. Delegates will have a choice of three parallel sessions to pick and choose the areas of dam removals that particularly interest them. The presentations in the three parallel sessions fall into technical, social/legal and ecological aspects of dam removal:

The draft programme has contributors from throughout Europe and will be an important event to learn about dam removal, the challenges facing different organisations across Europe as well as an important opportunity to exchange knowledge and develop networks that will help deliver dam removal in years to come. As they say “the biggest obstacle to dam removal is in our heads”, we hope this workshop will help remove this dam.
