AllenES Engineers will Present Two Posters at the ASBPA National Conference October 13-16

Poster Title: Beneficial Use of Dredge Materials  for Marsh Habitat Creation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast

Presenter: Mr John Bourgeois

Abstract: The program included the assessment, planning, and design of containment berms in sensitive environments to restore coastal marsh habitat through the placement of dredge material. The projects included marsh restoration at the mouth of the Wolf River in St. Louis Bay and North Beardslee Lake near the Pascagoula River. The projects included containment berm design including stability and settlement analysis, consideration of wind/waves on the survivability of the projects, hydraulic design of weirs, erosion control design, and construction document development.

Poster Title: Creation of Living Shorelines on the Mississippi Gulf Coast

Presenter: Mr Will Pentecost

Abstract: The project included the assessment, planning, and design to improve the resilience against seaward erosion of a stretch of Front Beach in Ocean Springs, MS through a natural system of erosion control measures supplemented with engineered technology.

AllenES’ Coastal Projects are Part of the LID Story Map Developed by MSU Gulf Coast Community Design Studio

LID Gulf Coast Story Map

The MSU Gulf Coast Community Design Studio has developed an interactive story map highlighting Low Impact Development projects in coastal in areas across the Gulf of Mexico.  AllenES is proud to have played a role in several of these projects where bio-engineered solutions were developed to address real world challenges.

Tracy Wyman, ASLA, PLA states  “It is our desire that this digital story map expand over time as a learning tool, inspiring practice and policy around Low Impact Development for the Mississippi Gulf Coast that protects our natural resources, beautifies our Cities, and provides meaningful connections between community and environment– for all of our residents and visitors.”

Rick Sumrall, P.E. Participates in Noble Community Effort

The Jackson Chapter of the Mississippi Engineering Society has been active since the first executive order regarding Covid-19 was put in place. For the last two months, in lieu of the chapter luncheon, those funds have been given to a local charity helping those experiencing added stress during this time. Additionally, the chapter has coordinated with Jackson Public Schools (JPS) to provide books for young readers. Today, members were present at 6 schools handing out books to students and their families as they collected their schoolwork and lunches. On Wednesday, another 6 schools will be served. When we’re done, over 4000 books will have been distributed.  We are proud of our very own, Rick Sumrall, P.E. for participating in such an important community event this week.
