Friends of Nelson has partnered with TU and WVRC to organize this training session. Volunteers must commit to long term monthly water testing, and to weekly testing at assigned sites if construction of the ACP should begin. After construction, testing may remain weekly or become monthly again depending on the specific needs of each testing location.

Volunteers need to register with Jacob Lemon (Eastern Shale Gas Monitoring Coordinator), via phone 814-779-3965 or email Include: first and last name, mailing address, phone number, and email address.
