The Pocono Creek watershed located in Monroe County, PA, is threatened by high population growth and urbanization. Of concern specifically is the potential impact of future developments in the watershed on the reduction of base flow and the consequent risk of degradation of wild brown trout habitats in Pocono Creek. Anticipated increase in imperviousness, on the other hand, is expected to elevate flood risk and the associated environmental damage. A watershed hydrology based modeling study was initiated by the U.S. EPA in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission to assist Monroe County in planning for sustainable future development in the Pocono Creek watershed.
