Elk County Conservation District Watershed Specialist Kim Bonfardine attended Monday night's regular meeting to update the board on the status of the Elk County Monitoring Project.
The project is designed to collect baseline data throughout Elk County and will act as an alarm system for pollution events that may occur in drinking water supply areas.
In March, 2011 the Elk County Conservation District received two grants totaling $211,000 for water monitoring equipment for water quality assessments throughout the county.
According to Bonfardine, 10 data loggers have been deployed; three have been installed in the Bear Creek watershed, six in the Kersey Run watershed and one in Rattlesnake Creek.
