Survey to be sent to Mifflin County residents
LEWISTOWN — Penn State’s Water for Agriculture project and the Mifflin County Local Leadership Committee has announced it is now mailing a brief survey to residents of Mifflin County. The purpose of the survey is to better understand the perspectives and priorities of residents and farmland owners in Mifflin County about a range of ground and surface water issues.
This survey will ask about residents’ views on quality of life, water quantity and quality issues, and the programs and partnerships designed to address these issues. The results of this survey will help guide the local leadership committee, and a wide range of other partners now and into the future.
“If you receive a survey, please complete it,” the groups said in a press release. “Every survey is important and helps ensure that the results of the survey accurately reflect the priorities and perspective of the county’s residents and farmers alike.”
All responses will be confidential and results will only be presented as anonymous summaries.
The Mifflin County Leadership Committee is comprised of residents, farmers, agricultural organizations, technical service and education providers, local government, civic groups and other agencies. The group has worked together for past two years or to assess current conditions and programs, identify and prioritize needs and implement projects that address the issues most important to Mifflin County.
