Yes, Penn State partners with numerous local community organizations to maintain shared aquatic ecosystems.

Partners include Spring Creek Watershed Management, Trout Unlimited, the local townships, and the Borough of State College. Together, we evaluate and manage water quality in the region, primarily through the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems Partnership with Ferguson, Harris, Patton, and College Townships and the Borough of State College.   

Penn State’s Agriculture and Environment Center Community Watershed Engagement Program brings Penn State researchers, educators and students together with community members to solve water quality problems in local priority watersheds.
