WNEP shined a light on water quality research being conducted by students from East Stroudsberg University at Cherry Creek as part of the Delaware River Watershed Initiative.
A group of student researchers from East Stroudsburg University and their professor met at Cherry Valley National Wildlife Sanctuary near Stroudsburg to study Cherry Creek.
The information collected is part of a much bigger project designed to ensure clean drinking water.
