The university uses several approaches to monitor the health of aquatic ecosystems. It has water quality sampling in surface waters where we discharge to as part of our stormwater management program. The Riparia Center on campus conducts long-term studies of the ecology and management of wetlands, streams, and riparian areas on a watershed basis, develops and tests ecological indicators for wetlands, streams, and forests. We also partner with local agencies and organizations (Trout Unlimited, Spring Creek Watershed Management, etc.) to monitor water quality in the Centre Region.
