Timber Groyne Workshop, March 2010

The aim of the "Andy's Workshops: A Problem Shared" series is for officers to share best practice and to assist operating authorities with basic skills development. The target audience is both experienced engineers (to share knowledge) and those new to or about to join the industry.
