Conservation District Welcomes Road Specialist

Conservation District Welcomes Road Specialist

Potter County Conservation District has welcomed Adam Causer to its staff in the new position of dirt, gravel, and low-volume road project specialist.

District Manager Chris Mitterer said Causer will be responsible for administering projects designed to protect Potter County's waterways from soil erosion, sedimentation and other discharges.

The Dirt and Gravel Road Program provides funding and technical assistance. Much of the pollution can be reduced or eliminated altogether through the use of the proper road materials and drainage systems.

Potter County is considered the birthplace of the state's dirt and gravel road program, which grew out of a campaign by the God's Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

TU’s Dr. Pete Ryan continues his involvement as chairman of the conservation district’s Quality Assurance Board (QAB). The board recently welcomed John McLaughlin as its newest member. A retired Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection employee, McLaughlin chairs the Potter County Planning Commission and the Triple Divide Watershed Coalition.

Causer, a resident of Turtlepoint, is a recent environmental studies graduate of the University of Pittsburgh. He was most recently employed with the Allegany (N.Y.) State Park as a naturalist and environmental educator.

"Adam is a valuable addition to our team," Mitterer said. "He is eager to establish a rapport with township and borough officials, as well as others who are interested in protecting the county's water resources through sound management practices for our many dirt and gravel roads.”
