New Stream Team in Luzerne & Lackawanna Counties, PA

After a 5-month long delay in training, ALLARM is happy to welcome 16 volunteers from Penn State Extension’s Master Watershed Stewards program to a new Lackawanna – Luzerne Stream Team. Since being trained virtually at the end of August, the new stream team has gotten out to monitor nine sites across Luzerne and Lackawanna counties. The group will be monitoring chemical parameters (pH, nitrate-nitrogen, and conductivity) once a month. On October 19th, the group also successfully completed their first quality control event! The CMC is excited to have this enthusiastic group of Master Watershed Stewards join ALLARM’s Stream Team!
