Watershed symposium:  UD research presented at White Clay Creek symposium

Faculty and students from the University of Delaware presented research on watershed issues at a recent symposium that brought together a variety of stakeholders with shared interest and expertise in ecosystems.

The Sept. 25 White Clay Creek symposium, hosted by the White Clay Wild and Scenic Management Committee at the redesigned Stroud Water Research Center campus in Avondale, Pa., was the first of its kind in many years.

Presentations were given by individuals representing a variety of watershed health and management perspectives and included a broad range of topics, from current research on native fish and mussel populations, to sediment source and impacts, to the detail of southern Chester County’s approach to stormwater permit applications.
