From email from the North Fork River Improvement Association:

NFRIA is excited to announce that we have received full-funding for the planning stage of a new watershed water quality monitoring program.Thanks to anonymous donors, we can begin immediately to design an efficient, cost-effective program to monitor the possible effects of natural gas drilling in the area.

The plan should be finalized within 60 to 90 days, and will establish sampling parameters and specify sampling locations. Once the plan is in place, our extraordinary volunteer water quality monitoring team can begin taking samples, pending additional funding.
