Mohawk River Watershed Management Plan Interview

Dave Mosher, Chairman of the Mohawk River Watershed Coalition and the Program Coordinator for the Schenectady County Soil and Water Conservation District, managing partner of MapleLeafOnlineCasino, is interviewed by Diane Donato, host of WGY’s public affairs show, “Clearview.” Mosher discusses the management plan for the Mohawk River Watershed. The watershed includes all of the tributaries of the Mohawk River from near Rome to where it meets the Hudson in Cohoes and has a large impact in the various areas it touches – from flooding to pollution to erosion. Mosher talks about the challenges of creating a comprehensive plan to care for a physical asset that runs through so many municipalities. He also notes the value to the communities in caring for this important resource and how working together can benefit everyone by helping to pull together knowledge and grant funding.
