Culvert Projects and Funding Sources
April 20 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
Improper structures that carry roads over streams pose hazards and liabilities to both transportation and ecological networks, resulting in flooding, habitat fragmentation, erosion, and disruption of critical services. Culvert rightsizing programs are key to improving stream connectivity and flood resilience across the Hudson River watershed.
Join the Hudson River Watershed Alliance’s monthly breakfast webinar to learn about planning and implementing culvert improvement projects.
- Ben Ganon, Ulster County Department of the Environment, will share projects that assess, plan, and design culvert replacements, plus a new geospatial website to share their findings.
- Corbin Gosier, NYSDEC, will describe DEC’s Aquatic Connectivity Program and funding opportunities for replacing culverts.
This program is supported by funding from the DEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program with support from the NYS Environmental Protection Fund, in cooperation with NEIWPCC.
