The intense upland urban and agricultural influences on the natural Stroubles Creek watershed system provide an ideal setting for downstream observations of the effects of further human development, stormwater management, and community stewardship behavior on water quality and aquatic ecology. StREAM Lab provides faculty and students with unique opportunities to concurrently conduct research, education, and outreach just kilometers from campus.
