West Trip, Groundwater Quality Monitoring Network (GWMN)

A county map of Pennsylvania showing eight well sites of the West 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 West Trip shown here has eight wells, one per county. The wells in the West Trip are in Allegheny (AG 700), Clearfield (CF 321), Forest (FO 11), Lawrence (LA 1201), Somerset (SO 854), Venango (VE 57), Warren (WR 50), and Westmoreland (WE 300) 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.
