Model My Watershed®: An Introduction for EACs

Webinar

Model My Watershed® is an open access watershed-modeling web application, developed by the Stroud Water Research Center (and partners), which allows users to analyze real land-use and soil data, model stormwater runoff and water quality impacts, and run comparisons on how different conservation or development strategies can impact runoff and water quality.  Join David Arscott, Ph.D., President and Executive Director of the Stroud Water Research Center and Carol Armstrong, Master Watershed Steward, and Chair of the Charlestown Township EAC for an introduction on how to use the tool, best use-cases, limitations, and an overview of the training resources available for EACs who would like to put this powerful tool to work for them. There is no cost to attend.
