SFU class project near Johnstown, PA, USA to identify sources of contamination for partner organization the Kiski-Conemaugh Stream Team. Results were used to guide watershed restoration planning.
Nonprofit organizations perform vital service in the restoration of watersheds, both at home and abroad. These nonprofits often affect great positive change with very limited personnel and budgets, impacts that could be amplified with technical assistance, focused research or simply additional manpower.
This is where the Center for Watershed Research & Service (CWRS) is called to serve. The CWRS helps match nonprofit partners in need of assistance with faculty and students from various academic schools and degree programs at Saint Francis University.
The Center's mission is to provide expert assistance and manpower to amplify the watershed restoration efforts of domestic and international nonprofit organizations and to advance the watershed restoration body of knowledge.
CWRS was founded with support from the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds with funds appropriated from the 2011 GenOn Energy Inc. settlement agreement.
If you are a nonprofit organization who could use technical assistance or volunteers, please contact:

SFU student-researchers traverse a mountain of mining waste at Cerro Rico de Potosí, Bolivia (top) to characterize conditions that create some of the most extreme (pH < 1) waters on earth. Characterization is the first step in remediation, which is a goal of the local community, government, and NGOs.
