Many owners of wells and springs have had their water sources tested in recent months, concerned about potential contamination from nearby gas drilling or other industrial activity. Testing is recommended for all private water sources to establish a baseline water quality profile. It can be valuable in the event of any future compromising of a water source.
On Thursday, July 12, a free workshop will be held in Coudersport to help area residents better understand their test results. Penn State Extension will sponsor the session from 5-7 pm at the Gunzburger Building auditorium. Walk-ins are welcome. Presenters are Extension water specialists Bryan Swistock and Jim Clark. Those attending should use the Water Street entrance. The workshops are made possible through a Colcom Foundation grant administered regionally by Headwaters Resource Conservation and Development Council that also paid for hundreds of private water supply tests in Potter and several other counties.
