Municipal Officials’ Day, Wednesday, October 20

Posted on: October 18th, 2021 by Leslie_Zucker

Munic­i­pal offi­cials from the towns of Shan­dak­en, Olive, Wood­stock, Hur­ley, Lex­ing­ton and Hunter are invit­ed to attend a 2‑hour edu­ca­tion­al event in Phoeni­cia on Wednes­day, Octo­ber 20 from 3:00–5:00 pm. The top­ic will be man­ag­ing sed­i­ment in streams to reduce flood­ing and ero­sion. We’ll learn more about how streams trans­port sed­i­ment and how to man­age sed­i­ment when an inter­ven­tion is nec­es­sary. A cer­tifi­cate of com­ple­tion will be offered for Con­tin­u­ing Edu­ca­tion Credit.

The pro­gram starts at the Phoeni­cia Fire Hall on Route 214 where reg­is­tra­tion begins at 2:30 pm. We’ll spend a half hour indoors and then move out­doors to the Main Street Bridge where the Town of Shan­dak­en grap­pled with a mas­sive sed­i­ment accu­mu­la­tion and flood­ing in the 2010s. Sed­i­ment man­age­ment in the Eso­pus Creek was exam­ined again dur­ing a Local Flood Analy­sis for Phoeni­cia. Town offi­cials will dis­cuss flood mit­i­ga­tion steps they are tak­ing to improve con­di­tions in a ham­let that is large­ly in the 100-year floodplain. 

Reg­is­tra­tion is required. Covid-19 safe­ty pro­ce­dures will be in place for the indoor por­tion of event. To reg­is­ter, enter your con­tact infor­ma­tion here:
