Pennsylvania American Water is the new sponsor of Carnegie Science Center’s real-time data monitor in the H2Oh!: Why Our Rivers Matter exhibit gallery, according to a news release.

The $20,000 sponsorship supports one of the gallery’s most popular exhibits, and will create additional opportunities for the two entities to bolster water science education at the science center, the release notes.

“We are really excited to collaborate with Carnegie Science Center,” Gary Lobaugh, Pennsylvania American Water external affairs manager, says in the release. “This sponsorship broadens the reach of our water-focused education efforts through one of the region’s premier education and visitor destinations.”

The real-time data monitor is a digital flat screen generating real-time data from river monitoring systems. Visitors can see how the temperatures, pH, and water levels in local rivers fluctuate.

Pennsylvania American Water and the science center will produce a series of short videos, shared via social media, highlighting the vital role that water plays in everyday life, the release adds.

“With a myriad of challenges impacting the world’s water supply, it’s now more important than ever to instill in the public an understanding of water science,” the science center’s interim director, Jason Brown, adds in the release. “Pennsylvania American Water shares the science center’s passion for educating the public about the environment, conservation, and why our rivers matter.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
