RIDGWAY - Steps to strengthen source water protection were discussed at an Elk County Gas Task Force meeting earlier this week.
Jodi Foster, community and economic development coordinator for the Elk County Planning Department, said Watershed Specialist Kim Bonfardine is ready to start source water monitoring in Brockway. She noted that although Brockway is in Jefferson County and not in Elk County, the reason for the monitoring is because much of Brockway's source water stems from Elk County.
Foster also met recently with Elk County Emergency Management Coordinator Mike McAllister, not present at the meeting due to business in Harrisburg, and Jake Moore from the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), to discuss creating a source water protection "layer" on the county's 9-1-1 maps.
