Restoration Project Impact Assessment in Support of Delaware River Watershed Initiative

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project quantifies the positive impact of one or several restoration projects associated with the Delaware River Watershed Initiative, namely those funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Delaware River Restoration Fund. Responses will be measured in the stream as water temperature and chemistry, algae, macroinvertebrates, and fish, and in farm fields as soil health (hydrologic, chemical, texture, microbiological).
