PATU and Penn State have asked NWPU to participate with them to provide baseline data for 11 Stream sites in Erie County; 3 sites on Crooked Creek, 4 sites on Elk Creek, 2 sites on Sixteenmile Creek, and 2 sites on Twentymile Creek. They have provided documentation, materials, and longitudes and latitudes for those locations. The information we would gather would include sample readings for conductivity, water and air temperature, pH, and stream depth; we have kits available to obtain that data. Plus, Penn State would like our help with one of their projects obtaining baseline Methane water samples from PA streams, including these sites. In addition we are to note any areas of seepage at those location and provide samples.
This is an excellent opportunity for our chapter to do some field work on local streams, while aiding other entities with valuable research. If you are interested in participating in this project please let Bill Glecos, firstname.lastname@example.org or Bill Eckert, Bill@EckertAppraisals.com know by February 6th and we will then set up dates to collect the required data.
