Roy Schiff, Principal Water Resources Engineer and Scientist with SLR.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County Stream Educator Tim Koch will team up with Roy Schiff of SLR International (formerly Milone & Macbroom Inc) to present at the inaugural Praxis virtual conference on June 4th. The Praxis conference focuses on the practical application of theory and research to improve communities. Tim and Roy, Principal Water Resources Engineer & Scientist with SLR, will present on a geomorphic approach to culvert assessment and prioritization efforts in order to help communities mitigate flood and erosion risks. Roy was involved with the research and development of a geomorphic assessment tool. Tim has integrated the tool into a Multi-Objective Stream Crossing Assessment Protocol (MOSCAP) used to assess and prioritize over 1,000 culverts and bridges throughout Ulster County, New York. Their presentation and break-out session will focus on the research-based development of the tool, implementation of the MOSCAP in Ulster County, and information on how people can implement MOSCAP in their communities.
