Mr. Brian Oram is a licensed professional geologist and soil scientist with over 20 years experience in applied earth and environmental sciences.  Mr. Oram has conducted research and consulting projects related to acid mine drainage ( AMD ), mine drainage, lake and stream monitoring programs, wetland creation and monitoring, filtration plant performance evaluations, testing new point of use water treatment devices and systems, hydrogeological evaluations, geological investigations, soils testing, soil morphological evaluations, water well drilling and construction, drinking water testing, mail order water testing kit program, and land reclamation. Mr. Oram has also been involved with Citizen Monitoring and other Environmental Training Programs for groups within the United States, Europe, and even the former Soviet Union.

The Key Components of the Groundwater Monitoring and Survey of Wyoming County are as follows:

1.  Provide residents of Wyoming County general information on groundwater quality and availability.  To do this we will be adding background information on the regional geology and water quality issues.

2. Provide online information about water quality problems common in drinking water supplies for the County and region.  At this point, the Online Help Guide has information on a number of topics or check out our online search tool.

3.Develop a Residential or Homeowner Outreach Program that offers water quality testing, professional advise, and helps to compile information on the regions Groundwater.  As part of this program, the Homeowner would receive a questionnaire and water sampling kit that for specific information about general location, water supply, water quality problems or concerns, and ask permission for us to use the water quality data for educational purposes.  

It is our hope that we could test water wells, springs, lakes, ponds, streams, and reservoirs throughout the County.  The Homeowner or resident of the County would then mail back the kit to Wilkes University.  This program is Online and Ready to GO.  As I mentioned earlier, this program is not grant or otherwise funded so if you would like to assist in compiling this information, there is a fee to obtain the sampling kit.  For well sources, the evaluation includes a professional evaluation and  recommendation for the need for water treatment.  If you have a treatment system, the package will include a test prior to and following the treatment system.

If the program is a success, it may be possible to obtain grants to support the development of the groundwater and surfacewater monitoring and sampling network for Wyoming County, Pennsylvania.
