Groundwater stewardship and testing education event slated in Upper Bucks

The Bridgeton-Nockamixon-Tinicum Groundwater Management Committee and ECO-Bucks will present a two-evening public education event at Palisades High School 7:30 p.m. on April 8 and 22. The event will also be live-streamed:

They developed the groundwater ordinance that was recently enacted by Nockamixon Township and is currently being reviewed by Tinicum and Bridgeton townships. Their website includes an area drought monitor, and reports reflecting their research:
