PATTON — Twelve members attended the meeting of the Clearfield Creek Watershed Association.

Annual mailing

Jerry McMullen reported that he will be working on the annual mailing and may have to purchase a few supplies for such. Dane Kalwanaski reported that he had sent out several solicitation letters asking for a donation to CCWA.

Grant money

Dan McMullen reported that he had purchased the instruments and solution from the Dominion-2016 grant. He also will be submitting a grant application to Dominion requesting money for a new water monitoring instrument.

CCWA did receive $4,500 from the Community Foundation of the Alleghenies for lab expenses of water sampling at the WFW and Brubaker sites.


Nominations for officers were made and elections will be held at the next meeting.

Technical reports

Reports for the various technical projects were given. All three treatment systems at the West Ferris Wheel site are releasing net alkaline water, and some fine-tuning of the systems is still needed.

The Gibson site is discharging flow with pHs greater than 6. The Ace Drilling Site was inspected in November, and no problems were encountered.

Clearfield Creek was sampled at 13 locations on Nov. 15. Results indicate that most of Clearfield Creek is net alkaline but considerable precipitate is present below Brubaker Run.
