We are pleased to announce that the CCWA is a recipient of a grant from the Dominion/Western PA Conservancy Watershed Mini Grant Program. Funding from this program will be used to purchase water testing equipment that will assist us in establishing a water monitoring program in the Chest Creek watershed. Thank you, Dominion and WPC!! TU Coldwater Conservation Corps Training (Shale Gas Monitoring Workshop) Thank you to Jake Lemon of Trout Unlimited for an outstanding training on Saturday, April 25th. CCWA members learned how to monitor our streams for parameters such as pH, conductivity, temperature, and turbidity. We also learned how to measure the cross section of the stream to estimate flow and other field observations to make each time we go out on the stream. We look forward to beginning our monitoring program in the next few weeks!
Thank you to everyone who helped with our 1st Annual Watershed Cleanup Day on April 11th! We removed 40 bags of trash from along two miles of Thompsontown Road, cleaned and beautified the Curly Hurd Memorial Park, and fixed our educational sign...a very successful day!
