BRATTLEBORO — On Tuesday, Dec. 13, representatives from Windham Regional Commission and the Connecticut River Watershed Council will join with the State Watershed Coordinator, who will give a presentation on understanding the effects of Tropical Storm Irene on Brattleboro and the surrounding communities.
Presenters include Chris Campany, executive director of WRC, David Deen, the CRWC’s River Steward, and Marie Caduto, State Watershed Coordinator.
The meeting is being hosted by the Brattleboro Conservation Commission, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Marlboro Graduate Center, Room 2E, at 10 Vernon Street.
Aling with understanding the effects of the storm on the region, topics will include how river systems in Vermont function and the effects of flooding on fish habitat and populations.
“In late August, we experienced the worst flooding in Vermont since 1927,” Drew Adam, chair of the Brattleboro Conservation Commission, stated in a release. “People have noticed a change in the streams — their location and the size. We felt that it was a natural role for the Conservation Commission to help people understand the science and social impacts behind what happened to our rivers and streams. Marie Caduto and David Deen have done similar presentations in other parts of the state and Chris Campany adds a boots on the ground prospective of how the flooding unfolded.”
