Webinar: Restoring Connecticut River

A webinar named ‘Restoring Connecticut River Flow in a Changing Climate’, hosted by Kim Lutz from The Nature Conservancy, is set to take place on February 27, 2019, at 12:00pm.

During the webinar, Kim Lutz will cover assessment and management recommendations for the Connecticut River watershed, the largest watershed in New England, covering 7.2 million acres.

In order to better understand the Connecticut river flow regime and identify ways to better manage human uses, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and their partners developed a basin-wide hydrologic model and decision support tool.

Part of an ongoing Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center (NE CASC) project, Evaluating the impacts of climate change in the Connecticut River Basin led by NE CASC’s University Director, Richard Palmer, the project evaluates the feasibility of operational changes at large dams throughout the Connecticut watershed to benefit ecological health and function while maintaining the important services.

These brown-bag talks provide brief updates on NE CASC activities and provide opportunities for participants to ask questions and join in discussions.
