Rural water systems do not typically even connect with nearby water systems that share their watershed upstream or downstream, or with watershed groups that may be working on restoration efforts in their source water areas, or with county planners, etc., but that is beginning to change in PA.
PA CleanWays arranged for a tractor trailer to move through the county and collect large tractor tires.
Producers successfully enrolled in the free water testing program will be notified and sent a test kit in the mail with sample materials, instructions and a one-page survey about their water supply.
If you have children in the 5th and 6th grade, your family is encouraged to attend these free fun family workshops! SFP 10-14 is for ALL families. Call your local Extension Office to register or click on the link below. Space is limited, so call NOW.
