From Potter County Today

clarkheimelwebinarPotter County’s multi-faceted efforts to protect its water resources was spotlighted once again during a “webinar” sponsored by the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania. Penn State Extension educator Jim Clark (left) and Commissioner Paul Heimel, who were the presenters, are shown preparing for the session, which combined visual and audio components shared with county officials across Pennsylvania and invited guests over the internet. Their focus was the Potter County Water Quality Work Group, an umbrella organization assembled by the commissioners to coordinate activities that include the award-winning Triple Divide Watershed Coalition, covering all 19 public water sources in the county, and a corps of volunteer water quality monitors known as the “Water Dogs.” Clark and Heimel also discussed the development of the Natural Gas Resource Center, which is hosted by the Potter County Education Council.
