Water Quality Monitoring and Modeling

Prompton Lake, Wayne County, Pennsylvania  

F. X. Browne, Inc. was retained by the Friends of Prompton State Park to perform watershed studies, identify potential sources of non-point source pollution throughout the lake’s watershed, and develop a watershed management plan. We conducted water quality monitoring at the lake throughout an entire growing season and developed a pollutant budget for the lake. We worked with volunteers to assess and document nonpoint source problem areas in the watershed. Information obtained during the watershed tours were used to recommend restoration alternative methods with respect to cost, effectiveness, environmental impacts, and their applicability to the Prompton Lake watershed area. The final outcome of the project was a comprehensive watershed management plan for the Prompton Lake watershed.
