At NYSWRI, we provide outreach and education, related to state-of-the-art research, to various stakeholders throughout NY. This work supports the mission of Cornell University as a Land Grant Institution and of Water Resources Research act by promoting the dissemination and application of research results toward the resolution of state and regional water partners. NYSWRI achieves these outreach goals by synthesizing information for and providing trainings to various state audiences.

Stream Buffer Management Workshop Held for Municipalities

Jan 3, 2020

Riparian buffers are a powerful tool to reduce nutrient and sediment input to downstream waterbodies and to protect streams in the face of climate and landscape change. But getting to scale with implementation is going to take a coordinated effort. In light of this, NYS WRI co-hosted a workshop on stream buffers for municipalities in Tompkins County. It focused on both planning and implementation of buffers at municipal, watershed, and site scales. The collected resources and the slides and videos of presentations and panels, compiled on the website, can be useful to many other NYS municipalities.
