The Effects of Human Interactions on Water Systems

Todd Menees describes how major weather events and human impacts, like stream channelization, logging and clearing of land for sheep, have affected, and will affect the geology of the area, and what that might mean to the ecology of the region.   

Todd Menees, River Management Engineer with the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, presents the Vermont River and Roads training across the state and provides technical assistance on river mechanics and the interaction of rivers and transportation infrastructure.  He was involved in the state-wide response to damaging flood events of Tropical Storm Irene in 2011 and flood events in subsequent years.  He has provided technical assistance for in-channel activities for state and local road crews, consultants, contractors, and landowners.  He assesses the stability of Vermont’s rivers, overseeing the design and construction phases of river related projects, dam removal projects and river restoration projects to improve flood resiliency in Vermont communities.

This is part three of four in the Dummerston Conservation Commission's Annual Winter Education Series 'Focus on Weather'. Videography by Janis Chaillou with editing by Em Richards.
