Stroud to expound on Delaware River Basin

Encompassing more than 13,500 square miles from New York to Delaware, the waters of the Delaware River Basin impact the lives of 15 million people who rely on these waters for drinking and agricultural and industrial use. This watershed directly impacts the health and economics of our region.

The Stroud Water Research Center has been studying the Delaware River Basin for 25 years, and the Stroud Center’s research and restoration are instrumental in shaping the future of fresh water throughout the region. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, its experts will share their insight with the public.

Join entomologist John Jackson and Director of Watershed Restoration Matt Ehrhart at The Union League of Philadelphia as they discuss the Stroud Center’s work in the Delaware River Basin, including its role in the Delaware River Watershed Initiative (DRWI), an unprecedented collaboration of more than 50 nonprofits to protect and restore water quality in the Delaware River Watershed.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for a cocktail reception. The lecture, presented by Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, will start at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are $5 per person or $15 per family. The Union League of Philadelphia is located at 140 S, Broad St., Philadelphia, Pa., 19102

The Stroud Water Research Center, an independent, 501(c)(3), seeks to advance knowledge and stewardship of freshwater systems through global research, education, and restoration and to help businesses, landowners, policymakers, and individuals make informed decisions that affect water quality and availability around the world.
