At Mondayâ€™s meeting of the Elk County Gas Task Force, Conservation District Manager Steve Putt said that Ridgway has been awarded a small educational grant to place awareness signs near public drinking water systems.
He noted the district's water monitoring program continues and said several of the devices that monitor water quality were temporarily moved from smaller streams to accommodate fishermen during the season. Additionally, there are now three satellite telemetry systems in the area to monitor water quality, two in Horton Twp. on the Brockway water systems and one in Fox Twp.
