Environmental Forensics in Water Resources
Hosted by Northwest Environmental Training Center

This course provides useful information for a large range of professionals who deal with environmental water resources, especially legal liability and changes in stream water quality, shallow water table, drainage, wetlands, and sedimentation issues.

Course attendees will gain an understanding of the main environmental forensic techniques available and how they apply to complex inverse condemnation, regulatory takings, and environmental damage cases. 

The forensic techniques explored in this course include:

  • Water quality and shallow water table modeling,
  • Wetland drainage,
  • Complex wetland delineation,
  • Riparian rights,
  • Sediment age dating.  

In addition, the expert witness investigations of several prior environmental cases before the United States Federal Court of Claims will be examined, and attendees will be asked to brainstorm several case studies and discuss alternative investigative approaches.

California Department of Public Health, CDPH, Approved for contact hours.
