About RVS

Field Sampling

Protecting and Restoring the Health of Ridge and Valley Watersheds:

The Ridge and Valley Streamkeepers (RVS) is an organization of citizens of the watersheds of Sideling Hill Creek, Town Creek, and Fifteenmile Creek. These landowners, teachers, farmers, sportsmen, business people and others are volunteers who work together in the community to document changes over time in the water quality of Sideling Hill Creek, Town Creek, and Fifteenmile Creek.

All volunteers undergo special training in chemical and biological sampling. RVS is committed to good science and sharing the results of its work with anyone interested in the quality of their local streams. Through educational programs, RVS volunteers work to foster appreciation of the value of these streams. RVS hopes that its work will ensure the preservation of Fifteenmile Creek, Town Creek, and Sideling Hill Creek resources for generations to come.
