Stream Maintenance & Flood Intervention Workshop

STREAM MAINTENANCE & FLOOD INTERVENTION WORKSHOP

FRIDAY, AUGUST 24TH
9:00 AM TO 4:00 PM

This one-day workshop is geared toward local municipalities
and emergency flood response professionals. We aim to give
training on stream behavior and how to use basic stream
assessments to design interventions that will work in
cooperation with a watershed’s natural tendencies. Proactive
planning strategies will result in a stream’s capacity to restore
itself after a flood event and reduce the erosion and
sedimentation that occur during repeated reconstruction efforts.

This workshop will include classroom-style presentations in the
Ag. Center meeting room and strengthened with a relevant, onsite
stream demonstration on a local stream. Be prepared to be
outside for part of the day. Pre-registration is required and
refreshments and lunch will be provided at NO Cost.

To register, email Corey Richmond at
crichmond@sullivancounty-pa.us or call the
Sullivan County Conservation District at (570) 928-7057.
