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.
