Do You Know Your Watershed Address?
PCCD has created a brochure and
an interactive watershed map so you can easily identify your
watershed along with some interesting facts about the water
resources in that watershed.
A watershed is an area of land across which water, and the
sediment and dissolved materials it contains, flow on their
way to a single common outlet- like a stream, lake or river.

The Pike/Wayne Conservation Partnership raised $975 at the
rain barrel silent auction that was held at this year’s
Pike/Wayne Earth Day event!
The money raised will go back to the schools that
participated to be used for environmental education.
There is still time to check out some exciting programs that
the Partnership is having throughout the spring.

6 Regional Environmentally Sensitive Maintenance
(ESM) Trainings - Spring 2014
The Center for Dirt and Gravel Roads has
announced six regional Environmentally Sensitive Maintenance
(ESM) Trainings throughout Pennsylvania for spring 2014.
Because of the Dirt and Gravel and Low Volume Road Program
funding increase, the Center is coordinating additional
trainings to accommodate municipalities who may not have the
certification needed to submit applications for funding for
their Dirt and Gravel road maintenance projects. The ESM
course is an intense two-day classroom session focused on
providing the knowledge and tools necessary for road owners
to maintain roads in a more cost-efficient and
environmentally sensitive manner. The course runs from 8am
to 4pm for two days and includes lunch. The course is free
to municipal, county, and state agencies involved with PA's
Dirt and Gravel Road Program. The course provides 1.3
Continuing Education Units from the PSU College of
Engineering. The course is free, but registration is
required, no walk-ins allowed if training is at capacity.
Please contact the Center for Dirt and Gravel Roads to
register for the program or have additional questions
regarding the trainings at 814-865-5355, email
or visit www.dirtandgravelroads.org.
