Pathogen and Water-Quality Monitoring at White Clay Creek

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

As part of a plan to meet new drinking water regulations, United Water Delaware (UWDE) applied best management practices at several dairy farms in the White Clay Creek and Red Clay Creek watersheds to reduce the amount of pathogens upstream of its Stanton plant. Scientists are monitoring water quality near and below these farms to measure the effectiveness of these best management practices.
