Directors of the Elk County Conservation District are considering the purchase of a second water monitoring website database to coincide with the one currently used for the Elk County Monitoring Project.
The Elk County Monitoring Project's website, powered by NexSens Technology, relays data from satellite telemetry systems installed within the streams and watersheds of Elk County.
According to Watershed Specialist Kim Bonfardine, the current database is limited to its 11 satellite telemetry systems that are expected to be completely installed by the end of summer.
District Manager Steve Putt said the second database developed by BandyWorks, based out of Petersburg, Va., could provide data from a host of other sources.
