2016 Annual Report Now Available

From a 130-acre power-generating and switching station site in South Huntingdon Township to a portion of Edgecliff Road Extension in Lower Burrell, our work last year took us to streams, farms, forests, roadway projects, construction sites, and municipalities across Westmoreland County.

It also brought farmers, teachers, contractors, woodlot owners, engineers, planners, and members of the general public to us, where we used new equipment and facilities obtained through our successful “Sustaining Conservation” fundraising campaign to promote proven conservation measures.

You Can Manage Stormwater

Poorly managed stormwater runoff can create a big problem for you and your neighbors.  It can cause localized flooding, polluted streams, and eroded streambanks.  As a homeowner, you can make an impact on stormwater management.  Read the Homeowner’s Guide to Stormwater to develop a stormwater plan for your property and use the Toolkit to install some best management practices around your home.
