We represent a spectrum of stakeholders interested in the headwaters of the Susquehanna and Delaware rivers. We are in the process of creating a searchable and mappable database of watershed data, such as drinking water well chemistry, stream chemistry, ecologic studies of lakes and streams, and other water-related topics.

Butternut Creek

The Catskill Headwaters Research Institute (CHRESI) serves as an umbrella for the many stakeholders engaged with watershed activities in our region of New York, roughly coincident with the headwaters of the Susquehanna and Delaware drainages. Stakeholders include researchers at SUNY schools; Soil & Water Conservation District managers; non-profit conservation organizations such as Otsego County Conservation Association and Otsego Land Trust; state and federal agencies such as NYS Department of Health and US Geological Survey; as well as county and municipal agencies. By bringing together people with a range of interests in the watershed, we hope to identify research needs, collaborate on funding proposals, share resources, and share our discoveries with the public. CHRESI is housed (virtually at present) on SUNY Oneonta's campus.
