The Monocacy Chapter has recently learned of the passing of Dr. Bob Saks. "Dr. Bob", as he was known to friends throughout the Lehigh Valley, was as generous with his knowledge about fishing and life as he was with his trout pond. The numerous ways Dr. Bob gave back to the angling, conservation, veteran, and local community are too numerous to list list, but suffice it to say if you knew Dr. Bob you knew he was one of the good ones. God speed Dr. Bob.
Obituary can be found HERE: Dr. Robert M. Saks December 15, 1943 - February 22, 2023
A few pictures from the TU archive of Dr. Bob, always teaching and sharing his love of fishing:

Why Volunteers Are Tracking Down Road Salt in Streams
Ever wonder what happens to the road salt that is applied to roads during the winter? Me either, but the Stroud Water Research Center has been working the issue of stream salinity after road salt has been applied, and the results are quite shocking.

The fact Northampton Co. is still in a drought watch is a reminder of how little it rained this summer, and how important it is to make our Coldwater resources as resilient as possible…Repost from @pennsylvaniadep using repost_now_app - Drought Watch Remains for Five Counties, Lifted for 15 Counties Residents on drought watch are asked to reduce their individual water use by 5-10%, or a reduction of three to six gallons of water per day. There are many ways to conserve water at home, including: ☑️ Run the dishwasher and washing machine less often, and only with full loads. ☑️ Shorten the time you let the water run to warm up before showering, and take shorter showers. ☑️ Check for and repair household leaks. For example, a leaking toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water daily. ☑️ Install low-flow plumbing fixtures and aerators on faucets. ☑️ Replace older appliances with high-efficiency, front-loading models that use about 30% less water and 40-50% less energy. #pennsylvania #environment #water #drought #usewaterwisely
