Newark, NY, June 19, 2017 - The St. Lawrence River edition of a high water impact survey developed and implemented by Cornell University with rapid response funding from New York Sea Grant is now available HERE. Survey responses will be accepted through August 31, 2017.

The survey was developed in response to stakeholder requests for a standardized method for collecting and reporting the impacts of high water levels on waterfront properties.

The information collected will be used to identify areas that are most vulnerable to high water levels and inform future community flood risk planning.

Southern and eastern Lake Ontario property owners will find the lake edition of the survey HERE.

“The information gained from these surveys will help New York’s Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River communities strengthen their capacity for future resiliency,” said New York Sea Grant Associate Director Katherine Bunting-Howarth, assistant director of Cornell Cooperative Extension, Ithaca, NY.

The survey project leaders are New York Sea Grant Coastal Community Specialist Mary Austerman, Cornell University Assistant Professor of Biological and Environmental Engineering Dr. Scott Steinschneider, and Cornell University Professor of Natural Resources Dr. Richard C. Stedman.

New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York, is one of 33 university-based programs under the National Sea Grant College Program (NSGCP) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The NSGCP engages this network of the nation’s top universities in conducting scientific research, education, training and extension projects designed to foster science-based decisions about the use and conservation of our aquatic resources. Through its statewide network of integrated services, NYSG has been promoting coastal vitality, environmental sustainability, and citizen awareness about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources since 1971.

New York Sea Grant maintains Great Lakes offices at SUNY Buffalo, the Wayne County Cooperative Extension office in Newark and at SUNY Oswego. In the State's marine waters, NYSG has offices at Stony Brook University and Stony Brook Manhattan, in the Hudson Valley through Cooperative Extension in Kingston and at Brooklyn College. 

For updates on Sea Grant activities: www.nyseagrant.org has RSS, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube links. NYSG produces a monthly e-newsletter, "NOAA Sea Grant's Social Media Review," via its blog, www.nyseagrant.org/blog.
