Training Planned For Volunteer Water Monitors

From Potter County Today

watertestcreekTraining for citizens who are willing to monitor streams and rivers across Potter County for signs of degradation due to natural gas drilling or other causes is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 12, from 6-8 pm at the Gunzburger Building auditorium in Coudersport. It’s part of a multi-agency effort to tap the interest of volunteers who cherish the county’s natural resources, in conjunction with a Water Quality Action Team that has been assembled by the Potter County Board of Commissioners.


God’s Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited, in cooperation with local watershed associations, got the ball rolling by recruiting foot soldiers who were willing to regularly take samples from local waterways. Appropriately, the volunteers are being called “God’s Country Water Dogs.” Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer monitor is encouraged to attend the Jan. 12 meeting, according to the organizer, Loren Fitzgerald of Trout Unlimited. Those seeking more information are asked to contact him at
