Pike County Groundwater Study Released

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) in  cooperation with the Pike County Conservation  District recently completed a study of residential groundwater wells in Pike County, PA.

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. Click on the brochure to the left to find out more!!

Regional Environmentally Sensitive Maintenance Trainings
Two fall ESM trainings are available. If you have attended the ESM training (or Annual Workshop) since 2011, please do NOT register for these trainings so we can accommodate new municipalities and those whose certification is expiring. Please note that due to expected demand, these trainings will be larger and may require more travel than normal. The course is free, but registration is required, no walk-ins allowed if training is at capacity. Please visit the Center for Dirt and Gravel Roads education/training website for more information.
