Since 1967, Stroud™ Water Research Center has focused on one thing — fresh water.
We seek to advance knowledge and stewardship of freshwater systems through global research, education, and watershed restoration.
What We Do
Support Our Work
Cellulolytic bacteria as surrogates for genetically engineered microorganisms: microcosm studies of persistence and effects in streambed sediments
Electrophoretic analysis of species boundaries and phylogenetic relationships in some taeniopterygid stoneflies (Plecoptera)
Disturbance, annual variability, and lotic benthos: examples from a California stream influenced by a Mediterranean climate
Modifications to simplify an AOC bioassay for routine use by utilities monitoring bacterial regrowth potential in water distribution systems
Featured Initiatives and Partnerships
WikiWatershed® web tools offer watershed data visualization, geospatial analysis capabilities, and science-based predictions of human impacts on stormwater runoff and water quality.
The Water Quality mobile app is a water-monitoring data-collection and learning tool designed for use by educators and their students, citizen scientists, and researchers.
EnviroDIY™ is a community where members ask and answer questions and network within interest groups to develop do-it-yourself environmental science and monitoring devices.
The Society for Freshwater Science Taxonomic Certification Program ensures skilled persons are providing aquatic invertebrate identifications in North America.
The Leaf Pack Network® is an international network of teachers, students, and citizen monitors using a simple experiment to determine the health of their local streams.
The Consortium for Scientific Assistance to Watersheds provides free technical assistance to Pennsylvania-based watershed and conservation organizations.
