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
Larval feeding and growth rate of the stream cranefly Tipula abdominalis in gradients of temperature and nutrition
Bacterial biomass, metabolic state, and activity in stream sediments: relation to environmental variables and multiple assay comparisons
Effect of a leaf shredding invertebrate on organic matter dynamics and phosphorus spiralling in heterotrophic laboratory streams
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.
