Emergency Stream Intervention training for highway departments, planners

A virtual Emergency Stream Intervention (ESI) training designed for highway departments, planners, supervisors, and engineers will be held Wed. April 28, 2021, 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM on Zoom.  Participants will learn how streams function, the historical perspective of the causes of stream instability, and an overview of an ESI project.

This program is a tool to assist communities to better understand how streams function, why flooding occurs, and how to begin addressing impacts to communities.  Program support comes from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and the Soil and Water Conservation Districts in New York State.

This ESI event is part of the Community Resiliency Training Program sponsored by the Champlain Watershed Improvement Coalition of New York, LLC and the Upper Hudson River Watershed  Coalition, with funding provided by New York State through the Soil and Water Conservation Committee.
