WikiWatershed is an initiative of Stroud™ Water Research Center. The Stroud Center seeks to advance knowledge and stewardship of freshwater systems through global research, education, and watershed restoration.

About WikiWatershed

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 web tools offer 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. WikiWatershed has been built using open-source approaches and software.

WikiWatershed has been funded by: National Science Foundation (grants DRL #0929763 and DRL #1418133) ~ William Penn Foundation ~ Stroud Water Research Center ~ Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation ~ The Dansko Foundation ~ Generous donations from Peter Kjellerup and Mandy Cabot

About Stroud Water Research Center

mec_platinum-no-captionWikiWatershed 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 concentrates 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. Learn more at
