Beaver Run Reservoir

Beaver Run Reservoir IUP–Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County Surface Water Monitoring Project

In June 2011, IUP faculty and students led by Brian Okey (Geography and Regional Planning) and Nathan McElroy (Chemistry) began monitoring surface water quality in and around Beaver Run Reservoir, a drinking water source managed by the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County (MAWC). The reservoir lies within a forty-three-square-mile drainage area and serves approximately 130,000 people throughout northern Westmoreland County and small portions of neighboring Armstrong and Indiana Counties.

The collected data and more information about this project can be found on the Beaver Run Project Wiki.
