Working Groups & Committees

The Stake­hold­er Coun­cil is informed by a num­ber of Work­ing Groups and Com­mit­tees. Below is a descrip­tion of each of the work­ing groups with a link to their indi­vid­ual pages.

Highway Managers Working Group

Attend­ed pri­mar­i­ly by local high­way depart­ment staff, engi­neers, and stream man­agers to dis­cuss trans­porta­tion infra­struc­ture and its inter­ac­tion with streams. Meets every oth­er month.

Stream Access and Recreation Working Group

Works to improve and enhance pub­lic access to streams and stream-based recre­ation­al oppor­tu­ni­ties. Meets on a quar­ter­ly basis. Open to any stakeholder.

Education and Outreach Working Group

Works to improve the dis­sem­i­na­tion of infor­ma­tion and offer edu­ca­tion­al pro­grams about stream and flood­plain man­age­ment. Meets twice per year. Open to any stakeholder.

Flood Hazard Mitigation Working Group

A water­shed-wide FHM group will form in 2014 and work to improve com­mu­ni­ty flood resilience in towns of the water­shed. Open to any stake­hold­er. AWSMP will con­tin­ue to assist the Town of Shan­dak­en with a flood haz­ard mit­i­ga­tion ini­tia­tive it formed in 2010.

Grant Review Committee

This com­mit­tee reviews grant pro­pos­als and makes rec­om­men­da­tions for fund­ing. Rec­om­men­da­tions for fund­ing are brought to Stake­hold­er Coun­cil meet­ings for final vote by the Exec­u­tive Coun­cil. Meet­ings are sched­uled as need­ed. Com­mit­tee mem­ber­ship is by invi­ta­tion only.


The Stake­hold­er Coun­cil may iden­ti­fy projects that require an in-depth lev­el of detail and work on a tem­po­rary or long-term basis, and form addi­tion­al com­mit­tees to meet this need.
