Objective:
To support Penn State's efforts to provide local assistance with collecting water and soil samples in the Conewago watershed as part of the Upper Chesapeake Bay watershed monitoring activities to meet Long Term Agroecosystem Research Network (LTAR) objectives.

Approach:
Penn State will allocate existing human resources, building space, and vehicles permanently located in the Conewago watershed to accomplish mutual objectives related to monitoring the effects of land use and conservation practices on water quality in major streams in the watershed. Samples will be collected and transported to the ARS Pasture Systems and Watershed Management Research Unit at University Park for analysis.
