We have a “Waterdog” Citizens Monitoring designation from a decade ago as we are residents in OLT, 10 feet from Lycoming Creek, near where Bottle Run enters the creek, 2 miles from the Susquehanna. We have some equipment that I acquired when completing a summer water course with Mel Zimmerman in 2009? Gail
