Water Quality Work Group To Meet Tuesday

Water Quality Work Group To Meet Tuesday

December 8th, 2012
watershedMembers of the Potter County Water Quality Work Group will meet at 8 am Tuesday, Dec. 11, at the Gunzburger Building to continue work on coordinating many efforts geared toward protection of the county’s water resources. On the agenda is a report on the state’s efforts to inventory abandoned gas and oil wells. Pennsylvania has established a fund to pay for capping of abandoned and orphaned wells, but the demand for funds far exceeds the available money.

Members will also discuss the possibility sponsoring a “WaterBlitz” next spring, patterned after the successful “BioBlitz” held at the Austin Dam Memorial Park in 2009. Emphasis would be on education about the importance of protecting area water resources. Local school students would be involved. More details will be announced. For a look at the 2009 Bioblitz, click here.

Among organizations represented on the Water Quality Work Group are Trout Unlimited, Potter County Conservation District, Potter County Commissioners, Upper Allegheny Watershed Association, Potter County Water Dogs, Potter County Education Council, Penn State Extension, Potter County Planning Department and the Triple Divide Watershed Coalition.
