Streams and wetlands are vibrant ecosystems that provide numerous benefits to communities and wildlife. Urbanization and infrastructure changes have led to a reduction in ecosystem services provided by streams. Highly engineered drainage networks have resulted in excessive stormwater runoff leading to erosion, as well as water quality issues from many types of urban pollutants. Join Emily Stephan as she explores the complex stream and wetland systems in New York City, monitoring strategies, and reasonable goals for the restoration of these highly altered ecosystems.

Emily Stephan, Ph.D. grew up in New Jersey along the Passaic River and has been fascinated by rivers and wetlands for her whole life. She is currently a regional hydrologist for NOAA National Weather Service (NWS), where she serves as a program manager for the hydrology services provided by weather offices across the eastern region. Prior to her position at NWS, she worked as a hydrologist for NYC Parks, where she monitored, designed, and implemented stream and wetland restoration projects in streams, wetlands and salt marshes.
