Commissioning & Enhanced Commissioning - USACE/USGBC Processes
Presented by Patricia Donohue. Recorded on 19 February 2013. Due to poor sound quality, you may want to watch the re-recorded session from 28 Februrary 2013, http://youtu.be/XPJIEBYHMUY. Synopsis: Commissioning has emerged as an important aspect in Design and Construction of new buildings. The Corps includes commissioning of HVAC in all its contracts. A renewed focus on commissioning has occurred as a result of US Green Building Council's inclusion in its Green Rating System (LEED) as a best management practice. LEED has included "Fundamental Commissioning" in the Energy subcategory as a prerequisite to achieving LEED certification and has defined additional tasks to achieve "Enhanced Commissioning". "Enhanced Commissioning is challenging because it crosses the Pre-design, Design, Construction and Occupancy phases of the project. The Webinar will define commissioning, its processes, tasks required, and provide comparison of USACE and USGBCs "fundamental" and "enhanced" commissioning. The webinar will conclude with a short introduction to commissioning in ASHRAE's relatively new green rating system (189.1). The ASHRAE standard is the Army preferred standard staring with FY13. Presented by the US Army Corps of Engineers.

The Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor:  What Fusion Wanted To Be
Google Tech Talks November 18, 2008 ABSTRACT Electrical power is, and will increasingly become, the desired form of energy for its convenience, safety, flexibility and applicability. Even future transportation embraces electric cars, trains, and chemical fuel production (jet fuel, hydrogen, etc.) based upon an abundant electrical supply. Although existing energy sources can and should be expanded where practical, no one source has shown to be practical to rapidly fulfill the world's energy requirements effectively. Presently there is an existing source of energy ideally suited to electrical energy production that is not being exploited anywhere in the world today, although its existence and practicality has been know since the earliest days of nuclear science. Thorium is the third source of fission energy and the LFTR is the idealized mechanism to turn this resource into electrical energy. Enough safe, clean energy, globally sustainable for 1000's of years at US standards. This talk is aimed at explaining this thorium energy resource from fundamental physics to today's practical applications. The presentation is sufficient for the non-scientist to grasp the whole subject, but will be intriguing to even classically trained nuclear engineers. By providing the historical context in which the technology was discovered and later developed into a power reactor, the story of thorium's disappearance as an energy source is revealed. But times have changed, and today, thorium energy can be safely exploited in a completely new form of nuclear reactor. The LFTR is unique, having a hot liquid core thus eliminating fuel fabrication costs and the need for a large reactor. It cannot have a nuclear meltdown and is so safe that typical control rods are not required at all. This design topples all the conventional arguments against conventional energy sources in such areas as: * Waste Production * Safety * Proliferation * Capital Costs and Location * Environmental Impact * Social Acceptance * Flexibility * Grid Infrastructure * Efficiency Should America take this step toward a New Era in Nuclear Energy Production? Hear the case for "The Electricity Rock" and then decide. Speaker: Dr. Joe Bonometti Dr. Bonometti has extensive engineering experience in the government, within industry, and in academia over a 25-year career. Recently completing an assignment as the NASA Chair Professor at the Naval Post graduate School, he supported a ship design study that utilized advanced nuclear power derived from thorium. Working at NASA for ten years as a technology manager, lead systems engineer, nuclear specialist, and propulsion researcher, he lead several NASA tiger teams in evaluating the Nuclear System Initiatives fission demonstration vehicle and missions. He managed the Emerging Propulsion Technology Area for in-space systems, the Marshall Air Launch team, as well as a variety of other power and propulsion assignments and is now the Lead Systems Engineer for the Ares I-Y flight. After earning a Doctorate degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Alabama in Huntsville, he spent several years as a Research Scientist & Senior Research Engineer at the UAH Propulsion Research Center where he served as a Principal Investigator and manager for the Solar Thermal Laboratory. He has worked as a Senior Mechanical Designer at Pratt & Whitney supporting aircraft engine manufacturing and at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory within the laser fusion program. A graduate from the United States Military Academy, at West Point, where he studied nuclear physics and engineering, Dr. Bonometti served as an officer in the United States Army Corps of Engineers; both in combat and district engineering management assignments. He is a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Virginia, and has authored numerous aerospace technical publications, particularly propulsion and space systems technologies. His technical expertise includes nuclear engineering, specialized mechanical & materials research, space plasmas & propulsion, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and space systems engineering.

Devil's Lake, North Dakota   2015 HD
Devils Lake is a lake in the U.S. state of North Dakota. It is the largest natural body of water and the second-largest body of water in North Dakota after the artificially created Lake Sakakawea. In 2011, it reached an unofficial historical high elevation of 1454.30 feet (443m). The lake can reach 1458.0 before naturally flowing into the Sheyenne River via the Tolna Coulee. The city of Devils Lake, North Dakota, takes its name from the lake and the Spirit Lake Reservation is located on its southern shores. The name "Devils Lake" is an approximate translation of its Lakota name, Ble Waka Sica ("blay wah-kahn shee-chah"; literally: "Lake of the Spirits"). Its Arikara name is "čiwahaahwaarúxtiʾ [čiWAhaahwaarúxti’]". Devils Lake is the endorheic, or closed, lake of a drainage basin of some 3,800 mi² (9,800 km²), the Devils Lake Basin. The lake itself collects around 86 percent of the basin's water runoff.[2] Above a level of some 1,447 ft (441 m)(NAVD88) AMSL the lake spills into neighboring Stump Lake. At 1,458 ft (444 m) (NAVD88) the combined lake flows naturally into the Sheyenne River, though the lake has not reached this level in approximately 1000[3] years. The Sheyenne River is a tributary to the Red River, which flows into Canada, with eventual exit into the Hudson Bay.[2] Current dike protection is set at 1454 ft (443 m)(NAVD88). Under normal conditions, Devils Lake is shallow, saline, and hypereutrophic (very high in nutrients). During periods of excessive precipitation, however, the lake can be quite deep (up to 60 feet (18 m) in places), eutrophic (rich in minerals, nutrients, and organisms), with decreased salinity due to dilution. Because Devils Lake is endorheic, the lake tends to be much higher in salinity than are lakes with outlets to river systems. This is similar to the Great Salt Lake in Utah.[4] Lower water levels increase salinity threatening fish and wildlife.[4] Salinity levels in the lake have been one prominent aspect of the debate over diversion of lake water into the Sheyenne River, with questions of the potential environmental impact of the diverted water on downstream rivers, lakes, and communities. Devils Lake is well known for its wide variations in lake levels,[6] with large swings between low and high water levels. This owes in large part to its nature as a closed-basin lake, lacking a natural outlet. The release of water is dependent upon evaporation and seepage.[4] The low, flat terrain around Devils Lake consists of various coulees, channels, and basins, which may be separated during times of low water, or connected during high water.[4] Thus the boundaries of the lake can vary greatly from year to year, depending on the amount of precipitation. The conversion of natural flood control mechanisms into agricultural land has had an effect on the flooding at Devils Lake. Drainage of the basin's wetlands and conversion of the basin's native prairie to cropland allows water to move more rapidly into the lake, increasing water levels.[7] In addition, the diversion of natural water flows has also been viewed as a contributor to the flooding.[7] An increase in precipitation between 1993 and 1999 caused the lake to double in size, forcing the displacement of over 300 homes and flooding 70,000 acres (280 km2) of farmland.[8] Attempts to mitigate the flooding have reportedly cost North Dakota and the U.S. government more than $450 million. Efforts to control flooding include dike construction and moving railroad lines, roads, and power lines.[9] In response to the flooding, the U.S. Congress directed the Army Corps of Engineers to research construction of an outlet in 1997 to control the lake level through methods other than evaporation or natural overflow.[5] The Corps' design included mechanisms for filtration and monitoring of the water, and was estimated to cost $186.5 million.[10] North Dakota, objecting to the cost and certain water quality provisions of the plan, declined to participate in construction of the Corps' outlet.[5] In 2003, the state constructed its own outlet to divert water from Devils Lake into the Sheyenne River at a cost of $28 million.[8] The outlet was completed in 2005, but was not operated in 2006 due to water quality and biota issues.[5] The outlet operated at the maximum permitted rate for the first time in July 2009.[11] The National Weather Service is the official government agency responsible for observing and predicting water levels at Devils Lake.

Music By: “Through The Flame” Instrumental iTunes: http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes YouTube: www.youtube.com/scottandbrendo Project History & More Info: FTC Disclaimer: This video was sponsored by my friends at weBoost. (#ad) Project Inspired By: weBoost.com. The weBoost staff reached out and invited me to collaborate on a video idea for their new line of weBoost products. About a month ago, they reached out to see whether I had ever heard about cell phone signal boosting. It was actually a new concept to me, even though they'd been selling products like this for over a decade, under the name “Wilson Electronics”. Our house has always had trouble with reception, so I had one of their systems installed so I could test it for myself, and measure the results before making claims on what it could do. I did a fair amount of research on how cell phone technology works in general, and different ways signals could be enhanced. And since most people don't have any idea how phones work or where the signals come from, I thought it would be appropriate to make a video with tips and tricks that people could try out themselves, to learn and explore the invisible radio world around them. Originally my thinking was to create a number of different projects that could be done with the weBoost system itself, or projects that related to the concepts of signal boosting. Among these ideas were; - Making a mini radio you could use to broadcast your voice on your kitchen radio. - Building a mini audio amplifier powerful enough to drive a large 8ohm speaker. - Ripping the weBoost amplifier apart, and seeing how it could re-purposed for something else. In the end I felt that a “Life Hack” video showing 10 tips and tricks, would be the best. I created the video to show 10 ways you could find, or create, better signals, but I also tried to design it so you'd be learning more about how the cellular system works, at the same time. There is a lot of education mixed in with the projects. So in a way it's kind of like a mini training course that'll get you involved with understanding the networks you've always used, but never really been aware of. I hope you learned something new you can start using. And if not, please watch the video again. There's a really good chance you'll see something you missed the first time around :) Remember to visit https://www.weboost.com/us/ and enter the promo code “48hrskingofrandom” for 20% off 3G products.

Rivers on Mars! (and other uses for hydraulic models)
In today’s video, we’re talking about computational hydraulic river modeling. HEC-RAS is ubiquitous in the industry, and many H&H engineers in the U.S. use it regularly for various applications including floodplain mapping, reservoir simulations, breach analysis of dams, and even fluvial geomorphology. Water resources engineers are very fortunate that many of the most-used software packages are available for free. I prepared a rudimentary model of the Kasei Valles on Mars to demonstrate RAS's capibilities. It's not scientifically rigorous in any way, but it provides some nice visualizations that illustrate why engineers use computation hydraulic river models. Please excuse my unkempt mug. We celebrate Movember at work, and I am getting a bit more growth before I go down to just the mustache :) Thanks to Trent Hare and Moses Milazzo from the USGS Astrogeology Science Center for their advice and help with the Mars terrain data. -Patreon: http://patreon.com/PracticalEngineering -Website: http://practical.engineering Tonic and Energy by Elexive is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6fBPdu8w9U Dark Times by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100747

Short-Term Multi-Stage Stochastic Optimization of Hydropower Reservoirs Under Meteorological...
2014 Fall Meeting Section: Hydrology Session: Advances in Hydrometeorological Predictions and Applications I Title: Short-Term Multi-Stage Stochastic Optimization of Hydropower Reservoirs Under Meteorological Uncertainty Authors: Naumann, S, Department of Surface Water and Maritime Systems, Fraunhofer IOSB-AST, Ilmenau, Germany Allen, C, Bonneville Power Administration, Portland, OR, United States Schwanenberg, D, Deltares, Delft, Netherlands Abstract: Hydroelectric power systems are characterized by variability and uncertainty in yield and water resources obligations. Market volatility and the growing number of operational constraints for flood control, navigation, environmental obligations and ancillary services (including load balancing requirements for renewable resources) further the need to quantify sources of uncertainty. This research presents an integrated framework to handle several sources of uncertainty. Main focus is on the meteorological forecast uncertainty based on deterministic and probabilistic Numerical Weather Predictions (NWP), its consistent propagation through load and streamflow forecasts, and the generation of scenario trees with novel multi-dimensional distance metrics. The scenario trees enable us to extend a deterministic optimization setup to a multi-stage stochastic optimization approach as the mathematical formulation of the short-term system management. The Federal Columbia River Power System (FCRPS), managed by the Bonneville Power Administration, the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation, serves as a large-scale test case for the application of the new framework. We proof the feasibility of the new approach and verify the operational applicability within a real-time environment.

I have a few concerns regarding the construction of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. A Mitigated Negative Declaration has been prepared for this project and was certified by the City of Anaheim in December 2003. I am assuming this declaration addressed the Army Corps of Engineers Water Control Plan for the Carbon Canyon Dam and Reservoir, dated December 1990. Having read the Plan, Having read the the Declaration, and the scope of work for the TIger Woods Learning Center, I am concerned for the following: Recently the Miller Stilling Basin was at maximum capacity and was diverting water to the downstream retention basins. As a result, the Crescent Basin were at maximum capacity, which in turn filled a portion of the Gilbert North / East retaining basin. According to RWQCB Order No. R8-2004-0091, the Gilbert Basins (North and South) are intended to be filled as part of the scope of work for the development of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. If these retaining basins are removed from the Carbon Canyon Dam and Reservoir flood control plan, where and how will the flows be diverted to ensure residential, commercial, and industrial sites are protected from high storm flows? In addition, the Carbon Canyon Creek flood control channel, located just before Gilbert Street in the City of Anaheim, On October 17, 2004 and October 27, 2004 reaching a high level and overflowing into the South Gilbert Retention Basin located within the Dad Miller Golf Course. On October 27, 2004 I spoke with what appeared to be a staff member from the Dad Miller Golf Course. I asked this individual why the flow wasn't diverted (using a manual gate valve) back into the adjacent Carbon Canyon Creek overflow channel, which was at a much lower level then the retention basin. He advised me that it is not normal procedure to utilize the manual gate valve. Can you tell me why the overflow channel is not used? I am also concerned for the wildlife habitat that reside in these basins. There is a variety of bird species (egret, killdeer,Black-necked stilt, Mallard etc., please see attached pictures) that appear to depend on these basins for survival. Has the declaration addressed the environmental impact on the wildlife in the basins? Was a Environemental Impact Report submitted? Mitigation Monitoring Plan No. 121 states a pre-construction biological survey is to be submitted to the City. Has this survey been submitted, and if so, is it available to the public? What is the Environmental Consequences at Crescent Retention Basin for the bird species (egret, killdeer,Black-necked stilt ) that live their? This basin is a seasonal wetland with Migrating Waterfowl Crescent Retention Basin gets flow from seasonal flooding during storm events. One last concern relates to the monitoring wells located at Crescent Basin. Are these intended to monitor the water quality within the sub-basin, or are they for water level monitoring, or both?

Corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (EME) - Pakistan Army
The Corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (EME) maintains the mechanical and electrical/electronics equipment held by the Pakistan Army. In order to meet the training requirements of the Corps, EME School was established at Quetta on 1st April 1957. The facilities in the school were constantly updated to keep pace with the quality and quantity of equipment being inducted in the Army. By 1969, the School had grown sufficiently in stature and expertise to be elevated to the status of College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. Having established its credibility as a premier equipment-training institute, it started its own B.Sc. Engineering Program in 1981, which was subsequently shifted to Naval Engineering College, Karachi. In April 1984, having stayed for 26 years at Quetta, the College moved to its present premises. The same year the College revitalized its B.Sc. Engineering Program in affiliation with the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. The program was successful and its quality can be gauged from the fact that College graduates won laurels for the institution by winning Rhodes, Commonwealth and S & T Scholarships besides proving their mettle in defence and civil industry. This success prompted the start of M.Sc. program in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering from August 1988 for officers of Corps of Signals and EME. MSc engineering program extended to Pakistan Air Force, Navy and Civil organizations in 1989. In 1990, entry to BSc engineering degree changed to Technical Cadets instead of newly commissioned officers. The academic program of the College was given a new dimension it became a constituent college of National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) in 1993. The syllabi of reading have been updated and redesigned to fulfil the mission assigned to the College by NUST with the national requirements in perspective because of its national stature. The undergraduate and the postgraduate degrees have been renamed as Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree and Master of Science (MS) respectively. The BE programmes have been accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC). The technological dictates of modern equipment necessitated the introduction of Computer Engineering as an additional discipline at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. The first undergraduate class was accordingly inducted in April 1996 and it is hoped that it will enable the College to train the much-needed manpower for the nation in this vital field of technology. Today most of the research and production processes and production lines in the industry are of electromechanical nature. It is inevitable for people working on those process and production lines to have knowledge of all the related systems. Presently the employees get trained while doing on the job training and lack the requisite theoretical knowledge. The College realising this disparity between industrial requirements and the curriculum content ventured into introducing Mechatronics Engineering from January 1999 at the undergraduate level. Mechatronics refers to a flexible multi-technological approach in the integration of Mechanical Engineering, Electronics, Computer Engineering, Software and Information Sciences. Consolidation of these disciplines is essential in the design, building and maintenance of intelligent products; especially industrial systems. Mechatronics Engineering provides a strong base in dynamics, mechanical design, sensors, instrumentation and control. These technologies are then applied in intelligent machines like Robots, CNC machines, and other microelectronics and microcontroller based machines. PhD program started in the discipline of Electrical, Mechanical and Computer engineering in the year 2001. In order to provide opportunity to those full-time working candidates and are eager to enhance their academic qualification, evening program in MS Software Engineering started in 2001. In year 2005, MS program in Microwave and Mechatronics engineering started. In year 2006 MS/PhD in Engineering Management started.

Toxic Algae: Complex Sources and Solutions - Full Episode
Lake Okeechobee was once the blue heart of Florida, pumping fresh water down to the Everglades and beyond. But now that a dike and canal system control its flow, water releases from the lake periodically create putrid mats of blue green algae. Scientists think water pollution is to blame, and if something isn’t done about it there could be irreparable damage to the environment, the local economy and people’s health.

The Clean Water Act, Wetlands & Stream Alteration: An Introduction
Presenter: Merritt Frey is River Network's Habitat Program Director, and is based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Merritt brings fifteen years of Clean Water Act experience on the federal and state levels to her position, with a focus on water quality standards, 401 water quality certification, pollution control permits, habitat restoration, drinking source water protection, and Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs). This webinar provides introductory-level information about the Clean Water Act's wetland and stream alteration permit program, also known as Section 404. If you are concerned about development and other alteration activities affecting wetlands, streams or lakes in your area, you need to be familiar with Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, which regulates dredging and filling of wetlands and streams. This webinar covers when a 404 permit is required, what the permit requires, and how you can influence the permitting process. Ms. Frey also briefly reviews the state's role in 404 permitting (401 water quality certification) and how you can engage in that process. Resources for learning more about the Act's 404 program and Ohio's related programs are provided at the end of the webinar.

Teng Afghanistan Network (TAN) Demonstration Video
This is a software system we developed for TENG & Associates (Now EXP) and the US Army Corps of Engineers. This video was part of a series of training videos related to TAN, the "Teng Afghanistan Network," which was a multi-tiered software system developed for a large electrical engineering project with the US Army Corps of Engineers in Afghanistan. This was part of LOGCAP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LOGCAP_IV) and electrical safety inspections mandated by Congress in Afghanistan after reports of electrocutions on military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. This software was developed to facilitate the work of the electricians and engineers performing the inspections, increase their productivity, and ultimately save lives. This video is presented to show some of our work. It's often hard to show the work that we do for reasons of confidentiality, especially on larger projects, but this is something we can make available. If you would like to contact us we can be reached by email at info@digitaltoyfactory.com Teams of electricians and electrical engineers would use this software to perform on-site inspections of power systems on military bases throughout the Afghanistan theater. The software facilitated field data collection/analysis, engineering review, team-based peer review process for engineering QA/QC, data synchronization, and automated reporting. Field teams would use the software to perform their inspections using tablet computers. The software would then synchronize the data to central servers through slow satellite-based internet connections, making it available to all users on the network. This synchronization process allowed hundreds of teams to pool their information and collaborate through the software. Users in satellite offices and state-side in the USA accessed the system through desktop-based computers and laptops. Reporting was also made accessible online through a web site for the military. Electrical inspections were performed primarily to the NEC or British standard, depending on the system. This software system increased productivity by over 500%, allowing work to be done in a fraction of the time compared with a pen/paper and mostly manual reporting system that had been previously used.

3D PRINTED Gun is now a Reality - First Fully FUNCTIONAL 3D Printed Gun is Made!
~Unslave Humanity Tactical Media: http://whynotnews.eu/?p=2143 ~this video is [FAIR USE] under © COPYRIGHT LAW it is: 1 noncommercial 2 trans-formative in nature 3 not competitive with the original work 4 not effecting its market negatively FAIR USE NOTICE: This video contains copyrighted material the use of which has not always been specifically authorized by the copyright owner. We are making such material available in our efforts to advance understanding issues, etc. It was mere months ago that people began seriously pondering the prospect of a gun that could be created solely using a 3D printer. Late July 2012, an Austin, TX based group called Defense Distributed announced plans to begin research and development into such a weapon, to be known as the "Wiki Weapon" due to its tremendous online availability. Their vision was not only to create an online repository for different printable gun part files, but to make readily available all the gun part files required to print and assemble a personal firearm, capable of firing at least one round. "So consider this, a CAD file containing the information for a 3D printable weapon system. If that file was seeded by 30 people, let's say, as long as there's a free Internet, that file is available to anyone at any time, all over the world. A gun can be anywhere. Any bullet is now a weapon," group spokesman Cody Wilson stated in a Youtube video at the time. Defense Distributed has announced it is in its final stages of testing a gun completely made out of 3D printed parts, titled the "Liberator," a salute to the single-shot pistol the FP-45 Liberator from the World War II era. "All sixteen pieces of the Liberator prototype were printed in ABS plastic with a Dimension SST printer from 3D printing company Stratasys, with the exception of a single nail that's used as a firing pin. The gun is designed to fire standard handgun rounds, using interchangeable barrels for different calibers of ammunition," writes Forbes Magazine's Andy Greenberg. In order to have the "Liberator" comply with federal laws, namely the Undetectable Firearms Act -- a law making it illegal to manufacture, import, sell, ship, deliver, possess, transfer or receive a firearm that is not detectable by a walk-through metal detector or X-ray machine -- Defense Distributed has inserted a small six ounce piece of metal into the gun's body. As we have documented in the past (Printable Gun Revolution Moving Forward Despite Corporate Second Amendment Fears in the Nov. issue of Infowars Magazine) Crowd-funding site Indiegogo terminated their account thwarting initial attempts to raise money, the Stratasys 3D printer company confiscated the printer Defense Distributed had leased citing dubious excuses, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sought to question him following rumors of illegal gun manufacturing. January, in response to Defense Distributed's work, New York Rep. Steve Israel was pushing for the renewal of the Undetectable Firearms Act, which is set to expire this year. Rep. Israel feared that, "With the advent of 3-D printers these guns are suddenly a real possibility," and that 3D printed guns would soon be "as easy to come by as a Google search." March, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and the BBC. Evidently, liberals aren't too happy with the idea of proliferating the so-called gun culture. The files for the "Liberator" aren't quite up on their site yet, but Cody says they should be there by Monday, along with videos.

Green Housing Goes Blu
http://www.dtsc.ca.gov/ The former Naval shipyard on Mare Island is being used to make a different kind of home. Blu Homes manufactures prefabricated homes that can be more environmentally friendly than traditionally built homes. Script: Blue Homes NATS of 1940's style music VO: Dating back to WWII this former naval shipyard was a bustling part of Vallejo's economy. NATS of War Siren/ Music fades FTB w/music VO: But in 1996 the Mare Island base closed. Years of use by the Navy created an unintended legacy...acres of land contaminated with lead, PCBs and other chemicals. To redevelop the base - a public/ private partnership was formed. The Department of Toxic Substances Control, the navy as well as developers are working together to clean up the former base. NATS of Sparks Flying SOT of Richard Hassel: I know that the operations I've been involved in...DTSC has been very aggressive and very proactive in forecasting the kind of work that needed to be performed in order to release areas of the island for reuse. NATS of EXT of Blu Homes Building/ Music VO: Submarines used to be built here ... NATS of Factory Now it's used to make prefabricated homes. SOT: What henry ford did with cars...we're trying to do the same thing with houses. NATs of Blu homes promo video VO: Using recycled steel, offering LEED certified green building standards, and pre constructing homes for delivery is why Richard Hassel says blu homes is the leader in pre-fabricated green housing. SOT of Richard Hassel, Blu Homes You can solar power it. You can have thermally heated floors. Electronically controlled shades. There really is no limit to the cutting edge environmental amenities that can be added through the assembly of your home. You can also come in and watch it be assembled. NATS of small frame folding Sot of Richard Hassel, Blu Homes - 04:01:03 -- Once the home is built in factory conditions it can be folded. VO: After that the home is put on a truck and delivered to the home owner...plot of land not included. NATS of promo video where home is being delivered SOT of Richard Hassel, Blu Homes Mass produced homes, I think, are a way of the future and our old thinking which is: anything mass produced is of low quality is something we will dispel. VO: Over one hundred jobs have been brought to Vallejo because of Blu Homes ...and they say there's more to come. SOT of Richard Hassel: Our Expansion plans are adding another assembly line next year so...the numbers are only going to go up. VO: The cleanup of Mare Island is ongoing but Blu homes is one example of labor and manufacturing coming back to this former naval shipyard. SOT of Richard Hassel: 04:14:30 being an ex-shipyarder myself...I see the parallels.// A lot of companies that have outsourced are now bringing manufacturing back. I think we're leading edge.

Stories from the Apalachicola: An Endangered River
WFSU presents a production of the Florida State University College of Communication and Information. Stories from the Apalachicola is the result of an interdisciplinary effort called the Apalachicola River Project. Students in Digital Media Production, Media and Communication Studies, English and Environmental Science and Policy partnered with Apalachicola Riverkeeper, a nonprofit group dedicated to preserving and restoring the Apalachicola River, its bay and watersheds. The group provided boats and kayaks so students could navigate the river to collect water and soil samples, record video and write stories about the effects of reduced water flow on the oyster industry, fishing and the delicate ecosystem. Students interviewed oystermen, beekeepers, legislators, historians, biologists, and the Riverkeeper, each with their own perspective on this critical time for the Apalachicola. Freshwater flows on the Apalachicola have been altered for decades, as the Army Corps of Engineers has restricted flows during droughts and modified the river channel create a shipping lane for barges. This has caused a decline in tupelo and other trees in the floodplain forest. And in 2012, during the lowest flow period ever recorded for the river, the Apalachicola Bay oyster fishery crashed. Communities along the river and bay look towards a future where the river might not provide for them as it did in generations past. For more information on the Apalachicola River Project, visit their official website: http://www.apalachicolariverproject.com/ For ongoing coverage of the Apalachicola River and Bay system, visit the WFSU Ecology Blog: https://blog.wfsu.org/blog-coastal-health/?cat=375 Did you find Stories from the Apalachicola informative?  Did it motivate you to want to help the river and bay?  Let the filmmakers know in this short survey: https://fsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ah4UOjQjF9kz0J7

Mill Creek Levee Maintenance 2015-2016
The Mill Creek Flood Control Project was completed in 1942 and included levees along the improved Mill Creek channel to provide flood protection for the City of Walla Walla. Currently, the Mill Creek Project levees fail to comply with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers vegetation standards used to ensure reliability, resiliency and operability of levee, floodwall, and dam projects nationwide. Non-compliant vegetation on levees blocks visibility for inspections, access for maintenance, hinders flood fighting, and adds uncertainty to structural performance and reliability, which increases risk. The inability to inspect, maintain or flood fight could contribute to a breach or delay emergency response. Over many years, the Corps has been trying to formulate a viable solution to address levee-maintenance issues at Mill Creek that has minimal impact on the aesthetic quality of the popular trails. Because of funding priorities and lack of staffing, we were unable to make much progress in this area. During the time that passed, the vegetation grew out of control and encroached into the levee maintenance zone. In the Corps’ view of things, not knowing if our levees are in good condition and ready to perform during a flood is an unacceptable risk to public safety. It is not an option to continue to allow non-compliant vegetation to potentially put lives at risk. We are developing a plan to ensure our levees are properly maintained to perform as designed – Ensuring our levees meet required safety standards will be a multiple-year effort. The following tasks need to occur as funding becomes available: clear the maintenance zone, remove stumps, repair the levee structure and plant grasses. The plan will include an environmental assessment, with opportunity for the public to comment on the plan, likely during the May-June timeframe. There are a lot of details we don’t yet know, but we will continue to keep the public informed as we move forward to make our levees safer.
