Nate Ober will be presenting “Designs the Drive the Success of Stream Mitigation Banks” at 8:55 am on Wedneday, June 19 during the Technology Innovations Session in the Ampitheater.

Josh White is scheduled to present “How Many Credits Would Your Stream Mitigation Project Generate?” on Wednesday at 3:55 pm in the Aspen room.

Rob Stewart will also present on Wednesday. His presentation, “Down the Drain and Back Up Again: Urban Stream Restoration in Pittsburgh’s four Mile Run Watershed (AKA M29 Sewer Shed),” will take place at 3:55 pm in the Ampitheater.

CEC is proud to be a Cobble Sponsor and will be exhibiting throughout the conference. Stop by to chat with our experts!

Featured Speakers

Nate Ober


Read Bio

As a geomorphologist, Mr. Ober has managed and designed 100+ miles of stream restoration projects, drawing from more than 15 years of experience in fluvial geomorphology, natural channel design, construction management, and post-restoration monitoring. Mr. Ober has worked extensively with the Tennessee Department of Transportation to grow a natural channel design program, as well as developing 8 miles of in-lieu fee projects in Tennessee. He has also managed and designed the largest stream mitigation bank in West Virginia developed by Ecosystem Investment Partners, and designed a 16.5 mile fishery enhancement of the Little Coal River for the West Virginia Conservation Agency. Due to the success of these and other projects, Mr. Ober has been asked to present at a number of regional and national conferences and workshops. Mr. Ober continues to provide ecosystem restoration services in the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and Mid-Western United States.
Josh White

Senior Project Manager

Mr. White serves as a fluvial geomorphologist/water resources engineer with over 13 years of experience in environmental restoration design and planning. He provides assistance in all aspects of stream and wetland restoration projects, including site search, feasibility study, mitigation planning, mitigation design, floodplain coordination, and project and construction management services. Mr. White has managed numerous large-scale restoration projects for a variety of public, private, and non-profit clients throughout the eastern US, serving as both the project manager and lead restoration designer. He has designed and constructed over 30 miles of stream. The majority of Mr. White's project experience has involved the complete restoration of highly degraded gravel-bed streams of moderate to high gradient. Mr. White also remains actively involved in post-restoration monitoring and applied research efforts, using this knowledge to continually seek improvements and refinements that lead to better overall function and value to his clients. Mr. White is a licensed professional geologist, professional engineer, certified floodplain manager, certified professional in erosion and sediment control, and has completed Rosgen training though Level IV.
Robert Stewart, Ph.D., E.I.T.

Assistant Project Manager

Mr. Stewart is a hydraulic engineer who has worked to resolve issues relating to quantity, quality, and distribution of water and its constituents. He as an emphasis on hydraulics and sediment transport processes in open channel flows. Mr. Stewart's specific expertise in water resources can be summarized to include hydrology, hydraulics, sediment transport, and channel restoration design. Mr. Stewart has created hydraulic and sediment transport models to develop innovative solutions constrained by site-specific constraints to meet project goals. Mr. Stewart's work history includes development and modification of civil designs using hydraulic modeling, proposal writing for funding from state and federal agencies, collection of topographic surveys, geomorphic assessment of streams, and writing project reports.
