October 24, 2012 -
PIKE COUNTY, PA - The Pike County Conservation District (PCCD) wants to get the word out-Pike County can still claim excellent water quality and should make every effort to protect its valuable water resources.
To that end, biologist and PCCD associate director Ken Ersbak has developed "Water Wonders of Pike County," a presentation that he has begun sharing with the community and at the most recent meeting of the PCCD directors on October 15.
"Recent focus has been on the biological component because we feel that is the one that really tells us what's going on in these streams," said Ersbak. "We look at the life forms that live in these waters, as well as the chemical and physical nature of the water and the habitat that exists for these organisms. Much like the canary in the coal mine, the organisms provide an early warning of hazardous changes in water quality."
Ersbak likened the monitoring to a physical and biological checkup. "We come up with something called biological integrity, which is an index that measures the water quality standard," he explained. "By monitoring it, we can tell whether the biological integrity of that water resource has changed since the last time we visited. It helps us to identify those streams that are extremely important to protect from future impacts."
Monitoring can reveal environmental trends and cycles, too. PCCD now has 50 stream-monitoring sites including 18 baseline stations in Pike County. "We have a program in which we visit streams every three to five years to see if there have been changes," said Ersbak.

On Wednesday, August 8, at 6:30pm, biologist Ken Ersbak will present "Water Wonders of Pike County" at the PPL Environmental Learning Center, Hawley, PA. Ken will explain the standards that establish a stream's water quality designation, how special protection requires that new or expanded activities do not degrade existing water quality, the attributes of Pike County that explain the quality of our water, some of the immediate and longer term threats to our watersheds, and how the Conservation district monitors water quality to assure protection of our streams by early detection of contamination or impairment. Ken is a Pike County Conservation District Associate Director, general manager of the Forest Lake Hunting and Fishing Club, and partner with Aquatic Resources Consultants, a professional resource management service providing fishery assessments and watershed, stream habitat, lake and pond management.
