    NJ-AWRA Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Use in Water Resources

    Virtual Seminar

    Time:   12:00 pm to 2:00 pm 

    Date: Friday March 8th, 2024


    Drones & Water Don't Mix! (or do they?!) Real Applications & Case Studies

    - Gene Huntington (Steward Green)

    Gene will be presenting on real project applications and approaches to pre, continuing and post project management that will likely encourage managers to utilize newer tech-tools to have in their “toolbox”. These practices can save time and money while increasing quality and safety. Gene will provide an overview of types of UAS (Uncrewed Aerial Systems), in-house vs. outsourced, costs associated with and FAA compliance issues and will provide time for discussion.


    American Water UAS Program

    - Chris Kahn (American Water)

    Chris will be presenting on the evolution of the American Water UAV program and how staff uses the technology to respond to natural and anthropomorphic emergencies such as storm events, harmful algal blooms and chemical spills. He will also discuss how the team has used UAVs for reconnaissance of land uses that may affect the water supply. The team has also started experimenting with remote water quality monitoring techniques.

    Drone Usage in Water Supply Infrastructure Monitoring and Maintenance

    - William Grumulak (New Jersey Water Supply Authority)

    Bill will be discussing how NJWSA’s drone usage has evolved over the last several years. Drones are used to monitor dam conditions and visualize other facility components. Staff can quickly scan large areas of land and water for security purposes. Reservoir conditions can be easily monitored to identify harmful algal blooms. Bill will discuss potential future applications, such as inspection of water supply infrastructure, real-time flood monitoring and water quality monitoring.

She has a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolution, with a professional background in biological resources engineering an ecological restoration. Dr. Maslo’s scientific research centers on understanding the evolutionary, behavioral, and physiological mechanisms underpinning the ability of wildlife populations to persist in the face of significant environmental change. Her work routinely combines quantitative, molecular, remote sensing, and field-based approaches to explore fundamental scientific questions. While her work contributes to basic scientific understanding, Dr. Maslo also actively translates research outcomes into practical, evidence-based directives to equip stakeholders with appropriate decision-support tools to advance conservation and sustainability objectives.


    Brooke Maslo's talk qualifies for 1 NJ PE continuing education credit and 1 AICP CM continuing eduction credit.
