Well/Spring Workshop Tonight In Coudersport

From Potter County Today

waterspringTwo authorities on the complex issue of water quality in private wells and springs will present a workshop in Potter County tonight (Thursday, Feb. 3). The session, jointly sponsored by Cooperative Extension and the Potter County Commissioners, is scheduled for 6:30 pm at the Gunzburger Building in Coudersport. Those attending should use the Water Street entrance, across from the Adelphia modular office trailers.

Bryan Swistock and Jim Clark, water quality specialists at Penn State, will lead the workshop. It’s especially geared toward owners and users of private water supplies, but it will be of interest to anyone with concerns about gas drilling’s impact on rural water supplies.  Emphasis of the Thursday’s program will be on interpreting the results of testing conducted on wells and springs. Information will also be presented on laws covering gas drilling and water testing, including “presumption of liability” issues, and steps water supply owners should consider taking if gas drilling is taking place nearby.
