County Agency Restoring Valuable Waterways

County Agency Restoring Valuable Waterways

November 10th, 2012
nov10streamrehab2Slowly but surely, the Potter County Conservation District (PCCD) and partners have been bolstering streambanks that have been washed away due to the flooding and man-made causes, such as the removal of vegetation. Most recently, the team completed a stream stabilization and fish habitat improvement project on a portion of the East Branch of the Genesee River in Bingham Township. The project on the Troyer property helped to re-establish more than 300 feet of stream bank. 

According to PCCD watershed specialist Jason Childs, the work will prevent approximately 130 tons of sediment from washing away annually. Funding was provided by the Great Lakes Commission, Pa. Fish and Boat Commission, Chapman County Environmental Initiative fund, and Dominion Foundation. Logs were donated by Steve McCutcheon. Six members of the Genesee Headwaters Watershed Association volunteer their labor.

“The district completed 14 similar stream projects throughout the summer in all three of the county’s major watersheds,” Childs reported. “Efforts will continue in future years to further improve the quality of these vast stream networks and reduce the kind of siltation that has impaired Potter County’s river, stream, and tributary courses.”

U.S. Representative Glenn Thompson Statement on Veterans Day

U.S. Representative Glenn Thompson Statement on Veterans Day

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) issued the following statement today in advance of Veterans Day:

"On November 11th, America honors the generations of men and women who have put the welfare of the nation before their own in protecting our freedoms. On this day, we join in thanking those from Pennsylvania and across the nation who have answered the call to serve, including many who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

"While we continue to thank and remember all of our nation's veterans, we also pay tribute to the current generation of American heroes now serving in harm's way. My wife Penny and I keep our thoughts with all of these brave Americans, along with their families and loved ones, and pray for their safe return.

"The men and woman who’ve served our nation with honor and distinction deserve our support and the best possible care, and it is our duty as Americans to ensure the promises made to these individuals are promises kept. As U.S. Representative for the 5th Congressional District of Pennsylvania, I pledge to work every day to ensure this commitment is fulfilled."

 State Police fire marshal Greg Agosti says the truck was stopped in a construction zone at 8:45 a.m. when the fire started in the engine compartment of the truck and quickly spread throughout the cab.

No one was hurt. 

The truck was connected to a tank trailer that was loaded with wax, but the trailer only had minimal heat damage and the load was not damaged. 

Route 66 was closed for about an hour before being opened to controlled one-lane traffic.

$1.9 Million Grant Will Create 5 Jobs/Help Remove 40,000 Trucks From State & Local Highways

Causer Announces $1.9 Million Rail Freight Assistance Grant For Bradford's ARG
Will Create 5 Jobs/Help Remove 40,000 Trucks From State & Local Highways

HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today announced a $1.9 million investment in freight-rail infrastructure in McKean County.

Specifically, the funding was awarded to American Refining Group Inc. to rehabilitate 3,700 feet of track and to add new loading racks for the refinery. The total project cost is more than $6 million.

“ARG is the country’s oldest continuously operated oil refinery, but more importantly it is a vital part of our local economy,” Causer said. “The demand for its Pennsylvania grade crude oil is on the rise, and this expansion of ARG’s infrastructure will allow the company to better meet that demand.”

According to ARG officials, the project will allow the company to safely handle an estimated 10,000 rail cars, create five jobs and retain more than 300 jobs. It also will help remove 40,000 trucks from state and local highways.

The grant is part of a state investment of more than $18 million in freight-rail infrastructure projects across the Commonwealth.

Governor Corbett Announces Two Programs Aimed at Saving Lives

Governor Corbett Announces Two Programs Aimed at Saving Lives
Yellow Dot, Emergency Contact Information Programs are Free, Voluntary

Harrisburg – Governor Tom Corbett today announced that PennDOT is launching two voluntary programs aimed at saving the lives of Pennsylvanians in emergency situations – the Yellow Dot and Emergency Contact Information programs.

“Both of these programs speak for people when they can’t speak for themselves, so medical concerns can be addressed and contacts can be reached as quickly as possible,” Corbett said. "When someone is in a crash or they find themselves in an emergency situation, it’s critical that emergency responders quickly find out as much as they can about the victim.”

Participants in the Yellow Dot program fill out the program form with their emergency contact, medical contact and medical information, insert it in the program’s folder and then place it in their vehicle’s glove compartment. Participants then place a yellow dot sticker on their vehicle’s rear window. This sticker alerts emergency responders to check a vehicle’s glove compartment for the folder, helping emergency responders provide specific care to participants after a crash.

The Emergency Contact Information program offers Pennsylvania driver’s license and PennDOT-issued ID holders the opportunity to log into a secure database and list two emergency contacts. Customers can update the information as needed, but only law enforcement officials can view their information in the system. In the event of an emergency, law enforcement can use the participant’s ID to find their emergency contact information.

While the Yellow Dot program is utilized only in vehicle crashes, the Emergency Contact Information program is usable in other emergencies as well as crashes.

“I sincerely hope that people never have to use these programs once they’re signed up, but I’m pleased that Pennsylvania now has these tools available to help people when they’re in dire need,” Corbett said.

To learn more about the Yellow Dot program, to sign up for a program folder or to find locations where program materials can be picked up, visit www.YellowDot.pa.gov.

Dan shot a 3 point buck and brought it in, one of his tickets was pulled as the winner of the Yamaha Grizzly. The 2012’s Big Game Contest’s first entry was a 6 point, shot by Dan Saporito during archery season. Dan shot this buck 100 yards away from where he shot his first buck.

After talking with Dan’s dad Chris, we were informed that another family member, Kevin Quinter won the 4 wheeler in the 1997 Big Buck Contest and his buck was also shot 100 yards away from Dan’s spot! Chris has decided that the first day of rifle season he will try his luck in that “sweet spot” and hopefully have another entry for the Big Game Contest.

Ridgway – PennDOT expects to open the Osterhout Street (State Route 1014)
bypass in Ridgway late in the afternoon on Monday, Nov. 12. Crews have been
working since March to reconstruct and realign Osterhout Street in order to
lessen truck traffic congestion in Ridgway Borough and easily access
northbound Route 219. Trucks and passenger vehicles will be able to use Osterhout
Street

Once Osterhout Street is open, PennDOT will lift the detour on Routes 120
and 219. Overall work has included utility relocation, asbestos removal, major
excavation, roadway construction, paving, roadway markings, and
miscellaneous items.

The 2013 construction season will address intersection improvements at
Route 219 (Broad Street) and Route 948 (Main Street). Those improvements will
include curbing, ADA ramps, and signal upgrades, with signal poles similar in style
to the current street lights.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. New Enterprise Stone and Lime
Co. Inc. is the contractor on this $2.75 million project.

New Deep Injection Wells Planned for Elk and Clearfield Counties

New Deep Injection Wells Planned for Elk and Clearfield Counties

By Susan Phillips
State Impact
The Environmental Protection Agency has issued draft permits for fracking wastewater disposal wells in both Elk and Clearfield counties. The state has only five permitted and operating underground injection disposal wells that take wastewater from oil and gas production. The EPA has issued final permits for two injection wells in Warren County, but they’re under appeal by residents. With the Marcellus Shale drilling boom, the gas industry needs more options to dispose of their waste water. But plans for the wells in Warren, and Clearfield counties have met substantial opposition from residents.

Seneca Resources has also applied to construct a well in Highland Township, Elk County.
