Freshwater impoundment in Tiadaghton State Forest
This photo was taken during a program offered by the Tiadaghton State Forest staff, titled "Marcellus Shale and Natural Gas Development on Pennsylvania State Forest Lands." The program was part of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers Eastern Section Conference. This is one of several freshwater retention ponds that holds millions of gallons of water in the Tiadaghton State Forest. The bottom of the pond is lined with a material containing sensors that send an alert signal if a tear develops somewhere in the lining.
