North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative
The North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative (NAACC) is a network of individuals from universities, conservation organizations, and state and federal natural resource and transportation departments focused on improving aquatic connectivity across a thirteen-state region, from Maine to West Virginia.
The NAACC has developed common protocols and TRAINING for assessing road-stream crossings (culverts and bridges) and developed a regional DATABASE for this field data. The information collected will be used to identify high priority bridges and culverts for upgrade and replacement.
Otsego County Soil and Water Conservation District has a coordinator and staff certified to survey and manage NAACC data.
