Early results now available

Our new methane sampling program has been underway since June, and we now have results for the June 22 and August 6, 2015 samplings. In a diagram provided by Anna Wendt of Penn State University, you can see methane concentrations in Chartiers Creek and some of its tributaries. Read more . . .


Testing for chemicals, temperature, pH, conductivity,
and macro-invertebrate health

The fall segment of our twice-yearly macro / chemical monitoring is well underway. This sampling involves collecting and analyzing stream samples from 4 different locations in the Upper Chartiers Creek.

We could still use some volunteer help with this program, both on weekdays and weekends. ChCWA provides training, supplies, and experienced guides. This activity is appropriate for adults and supervised young people.

For more details, please email Carrilee.
