    high quality streams worthy of special protection and fair quality streams that may deserve intervention to prevent them from becoming poor quality streams Overview of Web Pages This website presents the results of 12 years of study from 1996 to 2007 Included are data from 19 long term study sites on major tributaries that are sampled each year These sites provide a current and long term assessment of watershed health throughout the basin An additional 120 sites located upstream from the original 19 sites and sampled in one year only provide a more complete picture of conditions within the major tributaries within the Schuylkill basin Throughout this website sampling sites are color coded to indicate water quality conditions with blue signifying good yellow fair and red poor The site is organized into pages as follows Introduction presents general information about the Schuylkill River its location history and importance to the area as well as background on the use macroinvertebrates in stream water quality monitoring Sampling methods gives information about the study area and sites as well as sample collection and processing Project Goals establishes the three long term scientific and education goals of the project Data Interpretation gives specific information on what sort of data are generated and how they are analyzed Sampling Sites presents and overview of the basin the location of our 19 long term monitoring sites and the various sub basins for which we have additional data This page also includes an alphabetical list of all 146 sites with links to their pages and sub basins Contributors lists individuals and organizations contributing to the Schuylkill River project References provides details for the literature cited in the earlier pages Project summary is now available in Understanding Stream Conditions Lessons from an 11 year Study of Macroinvertebrates in Eastern

    Environmental Biology White Clay Creek Pennsylvania Overview Stroud Water Research Center and its 800 ha 3rd order drainage basin was designated an Experimental Ecological Reserve in 1981 by the National Science Foundation NSF This designation based upon the criteria of site quality research activities logistics and financial support recognized that this field research facility was dedicated to long term experimental research on an ecosystem this is an outstanding representative of its type The East Branch of White Clay Creek is classified by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as an Exceptional Value stream and watershed This the highest classification given and affords the watershed special protection against environmental disturbance of anthropogenic origin In 1998 the White Clay Creek experimental watershed extending from the Stroud Water Research Center north to the headwaters was designated as a site for long term research in environmental biology LTREB The National Science Foundation LTREB grant to Center scientists recognizes that many important questions in ecology require the acquisition of long time series of data NSF funds are being use to help maintain an on going long term research project examining stream and watershed characteristics associated with a riparian zone restoration reforestation In this LTREB project the overarching goals involve discerning the time period most salient features and final condition of a recovered state LTREB funding is being used to 1 maintain existing watershed installations to continue an on going acquisition of long term data on White Clay Creek 2 address the data management needs of the long term project including making the data available to the research community and 3 testing hypotheses concerning long term variations in stream ecosystem structure and function under stable and or recovering conditions Read more about Project site with site history and watershed map White Clay Creek data Project accomplishments Explore LTREB
