The objectives of the Buck Creek Educational Corridor are to, assess the environmental impact of in-stream and watershed changes on streamflow and water quality over time, provide problem-based learning opportunities related to stream environments for area K-16 students, and to provide current weather and water information to recreationists taking advantage of recreational amenities along the creek corridor.
Current instrumentation in the Buck Creek Educational Corridor includes one weather station, located on the top of Wittenberg’s Kuss Science Center, two stream gaging stations, one located on Buck Creek at the Plum Street Bridge and the other located on Beaver Creek upstream of its confluence with Buck Creek, and four water quality sondes located at various points along Beaver Creek and Buck Creek. Weather, stream stage, and water quality data are measured every 15 minutes and uploaded to the web once an hour.
