Jan. 17 Watershed & Community Resiliency Workshop Honesdale, Wayne County

The Wayne County Conservation District, Pinchot Institute for Conservation and Common Waters are hosting a Watershed and Community Resiliency Workshop at the Wayne County Conservation District, 648 Park Street in Honesdale on January 17 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This one-day workshop is designed for county and municipal officials and staff, planners, highway managers, and other water resource professionals who are interested in finding ways to adapt to water resource and infrastructure issues and build more resilient communities in the Delaware River region.
The impacts of shifting weather patterns on water resources, public infrastructure and communities are posing new challenges for watershed management in the Upper Delaware River region.
Floods in recent years have caused enormous damage and depleted budgets, but changing rain and snow patterns could pose other programs in the region too.
Speakers at this Workshop will cover topics like--
-- Impact of changing weather patterns and floods on stream health, fish habitat and road infrastructure;
-- Basics of stream function and dynamics
-- Historical factors contributing to flood damages
-- Emergency post-flood response protocols
-- Permitting and laws pertaining to doing work in or near streams
-- Examples of innovative projects and new approaches to flood prevention, emergency response, and infrastructure improvement will illustrate how communities are preparing for the next water-related challenge.
