Clean Water Institute

The Clean Water Institute (CWI) provides a gateway to the natural resource heritage of North Central Pennsylvania. Focused on the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and its tributaries (including, but not limited to, Pine, Loyalsock, Lycoming, and Muncy Creeks), CWI is working all year long to better our understanding and the health of our waterways. The goals of the CWI are to provide:

  • SERVICE to local watershed and environmental groups by developing and coordinating internships and independent study projects where Lycoming College students can assist in data collection and analysis of watershed projects.
  • EDUCATION and training programs, seminars, and workshops on environmental issues, stream restoration, habitat improvement, and water quality will be offered to watershed groups, schools, and other public forums. An archive of historical water quality data will be assembled and updated with information from ongoing projects and made available to the public.
  • ANALYSIS by our water testing laboratory will provide watershed groups with technical assistance in design, collection, and interpretation of water chemistry, macroinvertebrate, plankton, and fish data.
