SCMA Quarterly Meeting

October 13, 2021

10:00 AM

Topic: The Southeast Aquatic Barrier Inventory - Reconnecting Rivers and Streams through Partnerships throughout the Southeast Region

Presented by: Kat Hoenke, GIS Coordinator, Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership (SARP)

Summary: The Southeast Aquatic Connectivity Program is a program of the Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership. This program seeks to identify barriers across the Southeast region, prioritize these barriers for ecological benefit if removed, and implement high priority barrier removal projects on the ground within State based aquatic connectivity teams. Part of this inventory of barriers entails surveying road crossings in the field to identify which might be barriers to aquatic organisms. With millions of road stream crossings across the region, working together in partnership with state, federal, NGO and corporate partners to identify aquatic barriers is crucial for success. This presentation will briefly describe the overall Connectivity Program and focus on the road crossing protocol as a tool for partners including the mitigation community to use to collectively identify potential projects across the state of South Carolina and beyond.
