From Classroom to Creek

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud Water Research Center educators visited several elementary schools within the city of Newark to introduce them to the concepts of watersheds and how to minimize stormwater runoff in their communities. Students learned about where the water goes during a precipitation event, that storm drains are meant for water only, and how trees throughout a watershed not only help to filter water but also help minimize the amount of water traveling to storm drains.
