Westmoreland Conservation District Annual Report

Despite rain…and more rain…and perhaps the most rain any of our staff can ever remember falling in one year…we still accomplished a lot for conservation in 2018.

Our just-completed annual report looks at those many accomplishments.

Thanks to all who partnered with us to make so many good things happen in a very challenging year.

If you’d like a printed version of the report, we’d be glad to send one to you.  Just let us know at receptionist@wcdpa.com or 724-837-5271.

District Video Receives a 2019 Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence

The District received a 2019 Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence for its educational video: Stormwater Basin Retrofitting.  The two-part video, which discusses the design, assessment, retrofitting, and maintenance of stormwater basins, was produced by watershed specialist Chelsea Walker and filmed by Anne Daymut, watershed coordinator for Western PA Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation.  It was funded by a grant from the PA Association of Conservation Districts, Inc., through a grant from the PA DEP under section 319 of the Clean Water Act administered by the EPA.

On hand to accept the award at a special awards program in Harrisburg were Chelsea Walker and Ron Rohall.
