Tim Koch currently develops and delivers science-based education on stream processes to residents and municipal officials in the Ashokan Reservoir watershed. In this role he promotes a style of stream management that works with the natural tendencies of the stream, rather than trying to impose our will on the channel and make the stream into something it doesn’t want to be. Sometimes this involves allowing streams to be messy while gently guiding them from damage to critical infrastructure and structures. Tim will give examples and guidance on balancing messiness and risk in stream channels at this breakfast webinar.

Tim attended the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry where he received a Master of Science degree in Watershed Hydrology & Biogeochemistry. He currently works at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County and the Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program.

Sponsored by the Hudson River Estuary Program, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, with support from the New York State Environmental Protection Fund, in cooperation with NEIWPCC
