Tuesday, May 5, 2015
By Josh Woods Staff Writer
CURWENSVILLE - Clearfield County Senior Environment Corps, at its meeting yesterday, heard an update on community-based water quality monitoring in the county's Marcellus shale drilling regions. Dr. Mohamed Khalequzzaman, Ph.D., professor of geology at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, gave a presentation on the monitoring program and its results.
According to Khalequzzaman, partnerships were forged in 2012 to establish baseline data for the quality of surface water in the vicinity of drilling sites throughout the county. The goal was set to monitor surface water quality at 10-12 locations and a protocol was developed to collect samples and ship them to LHU's water and soil lab. more...
