TTF is proud to be part of the Delaware River Watershed Initiative (DRWI), an effort to protect and restore the Delaware River watershed led by the William Penn Foundation. Working with our partners in the Philadelphia Upstream Suburban Cluster, staff and citizen scientists — or Streamkeepers — implement water quality monitoring efforts at 24 sites across our watershed.
The primary goal of this monitoring is to measure the impact of stream restoration projects that have been funded through the Delaware River Restoration Fund of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University leads this effort, and Temple University and the Villanova Urban Stormwater Partnership participate, focusing on stormwater control measures as well as monitoring and modelling.
