River Hydraulic Modeling Presentation Online

Posted on: April 22nd, 2014 by Leslie_Zucker

The Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram host­ed a riv­er hydraulic mod­el­ing train­ing for munic­i­pal offi­cials, flood com­mit­tee mem­bers, and inter­est­ed part­ners this week. Local flood com­mit­tees will be review­ing the out­puts of hydraulic mod­els as part of Town-led flood mit­i­ga­tion efforts. The mod­els are extreme­ly use­ful, but are typ­i­cal­ly used only by engi­neers and stream man­agers. The train­ing helped the com­mit­tee mem­bers learn how dif­fer­ent flood mit­i­ga­tion options can be eval­u­at­ed using the mod­els. The train­ing was giv­en by Roy Schiff of Milone & MacB­room, Inc., a licensed engi­neer in Ver­mont. Roy’s pre­sen­ta­tion is now avail­able on this web­site.
