The Elk County Monitoring Project, spearheaded by Elk County Conservation District [ECCD] watershed specialist Kim Bonfardine, has expanded to the Brockway Watershed.
The monitoring project is designed to keep an eye on stream conditions in the wake of the Marcellus Shale drilling by measuring the temperature, flow and conductivity in each stream. The total project cost for the four-year program is estimated at $329,330.
As of Monday night's ECCD meeting, Bonfardine said one satellite telemetry system has been installed and another will be installed within the week.
