Our Community Water Monitoring Network

The Bridgeton- Nockamixon- Tinicum Groundwater Management Committee will be presenting Our Community Water Monitoring Network: Partners and Applications, a Palisades School District Community School course, at Palisades High School’s Audion on Mondays 10/21 and 11/25 7:30 – 9:00 PM. The course is free to the public.

Water supply in our Townships is drawn from home wells and disposed via septic tanks.  This seminar will present local volunteer and government efforts to manage our water resources to avoid overuse, mitigate drought effects, avoid well contamination, and promote citizen stewardship.  Hydrology basics and the data collection programs of the Bridgeton, Nockamixon, Tinicum Groundwater Management Committee (BNTGMC) will be presented. Bring your electronic device so we can access the various websites that archive data and provide general information. Presenters include Dr. Art Baehr, retired USGS hydrologist, Dr. Stephen Donovan, Chair of Nockamixon EAC, and Todd Stone, President of the Gallows Run Watershed Association and Chair of the BNTGMC.
