Project Title & Description
CREEK CONNECTIONS: EDUCATION AND MONITORING STREAM HEALTH IN COMMUNITIES NEAR SHALE GAS EXTRACTION
The Creek Connection project will engage K-12 classes in chemical and biological monitoring of local streams by providing equipment, training and human resource assistance for two years. This project will involve 20 middle and secondary schools from five counties in southwestern Pennsylvania. A specific focus will be potential water chemistry changes resulting from dramatically expanded natural gas exploration and extraction in the region.
