The Stroud Water Research Center in Chester County and Axalta Coating Systems are hosting a Seminar on the Health of the Delaware River October 19 at the historic Union League of Philadelphia starting at 5:30 p.m.
Stroud Water Research Center has been studying the Delaware River Basin for 25 years, and the Stroud Center’s research and restoration are instrumental in shaping the future of fresh water throughout the region.
Entomologist John Jackson, Ph.D., and Director of Watershed Restoration Matt Ehrhart will discuss the Stroud Center’s work in the Delaware River Basin, including the Center’s role in the William Penn Foundation’s Delaware River Watershed Initiative, an unprecedented collaboration of more than 50 nonprofits to protect and restore water quality in the Delaware River Watershed.
Encompassing more than 13,500 square miles from New York to Delaware, the waters of the Delaware River Basin impact the lives of 15 million people who rely on these waters for drinking and agricultural and industrial use. This watershed directly impacts the health and economics of the entire region.
Doors will open for this special event at 5:30 p.m. for a cocktail reception. The lecture, presented by Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, is at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are $5 per person or $15 per family.
