Talk at Community forum on the Wissahickon

I was part of a panel to talk to the community about a coalition to develop a water quality improvement plan for the Wissahickon Creek.  The creek is challenged due to its urban setting and it will take a community effort to control stormwater.  The coalition includes municipalities, wastewater treatment plant operators, watershed organizations, and my research group at Temple University.  Our role is to come up with a science basis for the plan.  We told the audience about our intense two-year monitoring effort and described how impervious cover leads to urban runoff.
