Catskill Streams Buffer Initiative Partners

The CSBI is led by a core team of six CSBI Coordinators (Coordinators)– five working from County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) offices in the West of Hudson Watershed, and led by one overall program manager from DEP in Kingston, New York. The CSBI is a functional unit of the DEP Stream Management Program (SMP), and as such the six Coordinators will be supported by technical teams established through the SMP at each SWCD as part of their contracts to implement stream management plans. Please contact your local CSBI Coordinator to discuss your riparian project:
