Gary Raasch, P.E., CFM, senior water resources project manager of R.A. Smith National, will present on two topics at APWA’s PWX 2016. Raasch will present “Habitat Restoration and Public Works,” which will provide conference attendees a look at a project completed within Wisconsin’s Native American Stockbridge-Munsee Community. A railway, constructed more than 100 years ago, greatly impacted the area’s ecological integrity. Special design considerations were required to restore the creek and ecosystem. Angela Waupochick, wetland specialist with the Stockbridge-Munsee Community, is a co-presenter.

Raasch’s second presentation is titled “Kenosha County Park and Ride Project: Innovative Partnerships, Design and Construction Techniques Resolve Multiple Challenges.” This topic will explore how, despite critical timelines and tight budgets, the project found success through innovative construction techniques, environmentally responsible design and collaboration. John Steinbrink, Jr., director of public works for the Village of Pleasant Prairie, Wis., will co-present.
