Beckley partnership wins acclaim for watershed monitoring
The Beckley Sanitary Board, in partnership with Piney Creek Watershed Association and West Virginia University Institute of Technology, has been selected to receive a 2023 National Environmental Achievement Award through the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) for their cooperative project, “Piney Creek Watershed Monitoring Collaborative.”
The National Environmental Achievement Awards Program recognizes individuals and NACWA member agencies that have made outstanding contributions to environmental protection and the clean water community.
The award-winning initiative began in 2017 as a conversation among the Beckley Sanitary Board (BSB), Piney Creek Watershed Association, and the WVU Tech Biology Department. The project was launched to learn more about local water quality, engage volunteer “citizen scientists” and involve students in “real world” field science.
