Spring Creek Watershed Community. Published report. 28 p. [WBI-67].
Report contains facts about The Water Resources Monitoring Project background and funding and their accomplishments to date. Twelve monitoring stations were built in 1999 and data is collected from them on either a continuous or monthly basis. Four sites are located on Spring Creek, Buffalo Run Logan Branch and Slab Cabin Run each have two sites and Thompson Run and Cedar Run each have one site. All sites are listed by municipality and installation date. Each site is sampled for the following quality parameters: a) temperature; b) chlorides; c) copper, lead and zinc; d) nitrates; e). orthophosphate; f) total petroleum hydrocarbons; g) total organic carbon; h) suspended solids; i) turbidity; j) pH; and k) dissolved oxygen. Examples of data comparisons and combinations are covered, as are observations of constituent loading, stream flows and precipitation observations. Figures and maps support the data. Members of the Water Resources Monitoring Committee oversee the project and follow the Department of Environmental Protection's procedures and testing follows the Environmental Protection Agencies procedures.

The Spring Creek Corridor Study. Published report. ????? 43 p.
The study encompasses Spring Creek from Boalsburg to Milesburg. Cedar Run, Slab Cabin Run and Roaring Run tributaries are mentioned as well. The study inventories the following attributes: natural, historic, cultural and scenic areas of interest. Digitized aerial photos map each section of the corridor. Information from field surveys, government agencies and historical records are included with the maps. The corridor was broken down into fourteen sections, each of which has four inventory and one conclusions map, which is an analysis and recommendation map. The corridor inventory maps contain ecology maps, history maps, property ownership maps and land use and zoning maps. MOST OF THESE MAPS ARE MISSING. See pg 12. The analysis and recommendation sections contain recommendations describing actions that could be addressed by the community and advantageous opportunities available to the community.

Annual Report of the Water Resources Monitoring Project. Published Document.
69 p. [WIB-161].
This project, which started in 1998, was
done by a committee of professional geologists and engineers to “establish
baseline water quality and quantity data for Spring Creek and its
tributaries.” Data was collected from 12 stream monitoring stations and
analyzed for 12 chemical parameters on a monthly basis, storm water data was
also collected at 1-7 stations for a total of 18 storms over a 16 month
period, temperature was measured daily at all stations, ground water was
monitored at the PA DEP/USGS well. This report includes a large amount of
data including tables, maps, charts, and graphs. The methods used are also
