Concerned Citizens asking residents to share results of water tests

FPS staff report

Carroll Concerned Citizens is asking residents to share water quality results in order to help researchers track water trends during a session Feb. 16.

 Paul Feezel, Concerned Citizens chairperson, said document scanners will be used to capture detailed lab results landowners have received as part of water quality pretesting from coal companies, gas/oil companies, or tests contracted directly by the landowner themselves.  A data release form will be available for landowners to indicate how the data may be shared and whether or not to use the landowners address or simply the township as a geographic reference.

“Data submitted will become part of the water database that we have been building through our Water Sentinels monitoring program.  We are also working with FracTracker and a number of universities to share water quality information as part of a growing number of long-term water quality studies.” said Feezel.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. until noon at the Church of Christ, located at 353 Moody Ave., Carrollton.  The February 16 event is being held in lieu of Concerned Citizens February meeting.  Regular meetings resume March 7.
