2016 Schoharie Watershed Summit                             

"Streams to Tunnel: Watershed Management in the Schoharie Basin"

Saturday, April 2, 2016 (9:00am-2:30pm)
Hunter, NY

The Catskill/Delaware watershed, which includes the Schoharie basin, is the largest unfiltered water supply in the United States. Maintaining this remarkable water supply involves understanding the current threats to water quality, how those threats impact watershed communities and the importance behind watershed programming to address these concerns.

This year’s program includes: reflecting on the Stream Management Program, which originated in the Schoharie basin, understanding the NYC Filtration Avoidance Determination (FAD) as the driving force behind watershed management, learning about two current invasive pests threatening our forests and waters, and continuing the tradition of providing a forum for discussion about water quality.  

This program is for all water resource stakeholders, including municipal officials, planners, engineers, watershed managers, regulators, and property owners. Afternoon workshops count towards municipal credits for planning and zoning board members. The summit is a forum to bring diverse interests together to learn from one another and to network as we seek to understand each others' roles in this living watershed.

Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided. Registration for the summit is free. Please plan to arrive early—registration starts at 8:00am and the presentations will begin promptly at 9:00am. 

Registration Deadline: Friday, March 25, 2016
