Debit Calculator Workshop Registration
The Debit Calculator Workshop is targeted toward public and private entities who complete permit applications for stream impacts (e.g., DOTs and private consulting firms). The course provides attendees with a mix of classroom instruction, data collection and processing, and an overview of stream mitigation procedures in Wisconsin and Minnesota. The field component includes the rapid stream assessment method to assess degraded and reference-condition sites.
The classroom portion then uses the Debit Calculator to predict the functional loss based on a variety of impact scenarios. Participants will learn how to collect data, process the data, enter field values into the Debit Calculator, and then calculate functional loss. The rapid assessment methods, data processing, and practice with the Debit Calculator will be applicable to practitioners working throughout the U.S.
This course is only offered to participants who have already taken the Stream Functions Pyramid and Quantification Tool Workshop.
Members of Interagency Review Teams, Federal, State and Local Agencies with regulatory responsibilities, and consultants who use a Debit Tool/Calculator.
