Water Quality Monitoring in White Clay Creek Watershed, 1991-2008

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Scientists combined data collected by the White Clay Creek Stream Watch Program (Pennsylvania and Delaware) and Stroud Water Research Center to provide an assessment of current conditions across 18 locations throughout the watershed and an additional nine sites around Avondale, Pa. They also documented long-term changes and variations at sites with multiple years of data. Comparable data from sites in the Schuylkill River Basin provided an invaluable perspective.
