Upcoming Webinars

All webinars begin at 9 am unless noted below.

  • January 20: Stream Documents Q&A
    • These two webinar timeslots will have minimal presentation from the CDGRS or SCC, instead focusing on providing an opportunity for CDs to ask questions and provide direct feedback on the proposed new Stream Crossing Documents (Policy, Standard, and Technical Manual).  Those documents are currently out for review by CDs and others through the end of January, and we hope this opportunity to ask questions and interact directly with CDGRS and SCC staff will assist in the review process.
  • January 27: Prevailing Wage
    • Overview of Prevailing Wage requirements for DGLVR Program with some updated examples.
  • February 3: Full Depth Reclamation (Remote Training)
    • Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) is a base stabilization technique that grinds the existing road surface and base, mixes in either a mechanical or chemical stabilizer, then reshapes and recompacts the base to provide a good foundation on which to place a road surface.  This remote session will dive into the FDR process as it relates to the DGLVR Program in more detail than the limited time at the ESM training allows.  Estimated ~60 minutes.
  • February 10: Stream Crossing Documents: Comments Overview
    • Discussion:  In addition to the new stream crossing documents, there are a relatively small amount of other DGLVR policy changes that are proposed.  This webinar will review these proposed changes and provide an opportunity for questions and feedback from CDs.
  • February 17: DGLVR Policy Changes, Overview and Discussion
    • In addition to the new stream crossing documents, there are a relatively small amount of other DGLVR policy changes that are proposed.  This webinar will review these proposed changes and provide an opportunity for questions and feedback from CDs.
  • March 10: Annual Summary Report Overview
    • Overview of spending, deliverables, trends, etc. obtained from the DGLVR Annual Summary Report that is due from CDs in January.
  • March 17: Start of "DSA Season"
