**Stream Monitoring Workshop
|Location :||Hancock, New York|
Delaware Riverkeeper Network is seeking local volunteer monitors who live in the Upper & Middle Delaware River Watershed to monitor their local streams on a monthly basis to document stream health. Volunteers trained during this workshop will join a team of citizens who have adopted stream stations in the proposed gas drilling region of the Basin and beyond (north of the Delaware Water Gap). Streams needing coverage are those areas underlain with Marcellus shale and where leasing has occurred and surrounding areas that may be in the vicinity of drilling or drilling traffic and infrastructure.
Volunteer Monitor Calvin Flowers samples Mill Creek.
In addition, volunteers will learn visual assessments to be able to help document erosion and sediment control problems that often come with planned pipeline projects. Data collected so far has been integral to the advocacy and protection efforts of the Basin. Trained volunteers are able to loan monitoring equipment for free from Delaware Riverkeeper Network (valued at $180).
We'd like to thank West Branch Angler and Resort for volunteering the pavilion space and Catskills Citizens for Safe Energy for partnering with us for this program.
