Pen Argyl township marks a threshold between the Blue Mountain ridge, and the slate belt plateau that underscores Northampton county. An interplay between enterprise and ecology frames the dynamic relationship between this historic slate mining community and natural resources in this environment.

Contemporary water extraction activities build on this history, creating opportunities for further integration of the landscape with towns in this region.
