Training Planned For Volunteer Water Monitors

Training Planned For Volunteer Water Monitors

November 7th, 2012
watermonitoringAn organization of water monitors is seeking more volunteers to regularly check rivers, creeks and streams for signs of degradation.

 “God’s Country Water Dogs” have scheduled a water monitor training session scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9 am to 3:30 pm at the Gunzburger Building. Individuals and community groups interested in monitoring local waterways are encouraged to attend. 

The program will include an explanation of the importance of monitoring water quality, the science behind shale gas drilling and a look at water pollution that could stem from gas drilling. More information is available from Loren Fitzgerald at lrfitzg@zitomedia.net. Penn State Extension is registering volunteers for the Nov. 17 training at 814-887-5613 or jac20@psu.edu.

Current water dogs are being asked to attend a workshop in advance of that training on Friday, Nov. 16, from 6-8 pm. Julie Vastine from Dickinson College’s Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM) will discuss data management and visual assessment, including observation of pipeline development. Bob Volkmar will introduce the new Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited portal for data collection. 

Although the forecasted increase in shale gas drilling inspired the God’s Country Water Dogs to form, the organization prepares volunteers to check for signs of all forms of water quality degradation.
