Northeast Trip, Groundwater Quality Monitoring Network (GWMN)

A county map of Pennsylvania showing six well sites of the Northeast Trip in the Groundwater Quality Monitoring Network.

Detailed Description

The Groundwater Quality Monitoring Network (GWMN) consists of 27 wells distributed over 26 counties. The Network is divided into four trips: Local, North, Northeast, and West. The Northeast Trip shown here has six wells, one per county. The wells in the Northeast Trip are in Carbon (CB 104), Pike (PI 522), Sullivan (SU 169), Susquehanna (SQ 61), Wayne (WN 64), and Wyoming (WY 197) Counties. Samples are collected twice per year and typically analyzed for physical parameters (pH, conductance, temperature, etc.), major and minor ions (both metal and non-metal), and nutrients, organics (other than pesticides or PCBs), and radioactive consituents. Continuous water-level monitoring also occurs at select wells.
