The Pike County Conservation District is leading an effort to establish a County-wide Observation Well Network to monitor groundwater levels.

Text Box: They are currently seeking landowners in Pike County willing to make their wells available for monthly water level measurements from 2007-2009.

The establishment of this Well Network is part of a broader “Pike County Comprehensive Groundwater Assessment”, a project funded by a PA DEP Growing Greener grant and the Pike County Commissioners. Project Partners include the Pike County Conservation District, U.S. Geological Survey, County Office of Community Planning, Pike County Commissioners, and supporting municipalities and residents.
