NOAA Awards $243,000 to Alumni/Faculty Project

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has awarded Syntectic International, LLC of Portland, Oregon; Antioch University New England of Keene, New Hampshire; and the Lake Sunapee Protective Association of Sunapee, New Hampshire, and partners $243,000 to prepare the Lake Sunapee watershed for climate change and population growth.

The project partners hope to protect a vulnerable storm-water and drinking-water system and develop and disseminate practical and transferable information for safeguarding communities, as well as provide specific and reliable estimates of climate change impacts on the Lake Sunapee watershed. By developing a local-scale action protocol, the project team aims to maintain historic stormwater risk levels for the Lake Sunapee watershed and other communities facing significant impacts from climate change and population growth.

The interdisciplinary team includes lead investigator Latham Stack, CEO of Syntectic International; Michael Simpson, Jim Gruber, and Colin Lawson of Antioch University New England; Dr. Robert Roseen of the University of New Hampshire Stormwater Center; Thomas Crosslin from Climate Techniques of Portland, Oregon; and Robert Wood of the Lake Sunapee Protective Association. Internationally recognized adaptation expert Joel Smith with Stratus Consulting in Boulder, Colorado will also be a team member. Five of the eight researchers are either Antioch New England alumni or faculty.
