February, 2015

 
The February 12 meeting of the North Fork Watershed Association was attended by 4 members.
 
Shaun Wessell stated that the Jefferson Conservation District has hired 2 new employees.  Grace Pesselato was hired as a Watershed Specialist.  Carl Johnson was hired as a Resource Technician. It will be Carl's responsibility to oversee the Dirt and Gravel Road Projects.  
 
The first phase of the replacement of Brookville's sewage lines will affect the North Fork Watershed.  The water and sewage contract for the Industrial Park has been done.  
 
PennDOT is to start work on the Egypt Bridge the last week of February or the first week of March.
 
Individual and family memberships have been going slow but the business memberships have been going very well.  A special thanks goes to Ron Battaglia for his efforts in signing up more business members.

A motion was made to retain all the NFWA officers for 2015 in the same positions they held in 2014.

A date for the Bi-Annual water sampling will be set at the next meeting.
 
At a future meeting, we will discuss the possibility of an Environmental Watershed Camp for 2015.
