WikiWatershed™ is a web toolkit to support citizens, conservation practitioners, municipal decision-makers, researchers, educators, and students to collaboratively advance knowledge and stewardship of fresh water.
WikiWatershed’s flagship tool, Model My Watershed®, offers rapid visualization of watershed data, advanced geospatial analysis capabilities, and science-based predictions of human impacts on stormwater runoff and water quality. The intuitive user interface makes this easy to do in any modern web browser. Our vision is for users to share watershed-model scenarios, watershed-monitoring data, and watershed-management stories as an open, collaborative community. Model My Watershed has been built using open-source approaches and software. Meet the development team on the Model My Watershed page.

About Stroud Water Research Center
WikiWatershed is an initiative of Stroud™ Water Research Center. Since 1967, Stroud Center scientists and educators have been focused on one thing: fresh water. Our research focuses on streams and rivers, including how they function as a whole and the complex web of life that inhabits them. Only through knowing how healthy streams and rivers work, and what happens when they become polluted, can we determine how to protect and preserve this vital resource.
