The Southwesten Pennsylvania’s Homeowner’s Guide to Stormwater is now available (click here). The guide shows homeowners how to assess stormwater on their property and takes them through the steps to develop their own stormwater management plan. The Westmoreland Conservation District, Allegheny County Conservation District, Westmoreland County Planning Department, City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, and Penn State Extension worked to adapt an existing guide for Lancaster County for southwestern PA. This new guide was made possible through a grant from the Water Resources Education Network to the Penn’s Corner Conservancy and Charitable Trust. Limited hard copies of the guide are available. For more information, contact Jen Novak at 724-837-5271.
2013 Westmoreland Conservation District Audit
As mentioned in our current annual report, the District’s 2013 was delayed due to the District’s board decision to bring the process into compliance with the Governmental Accounting Standards Board Statement 34.
GASB contends that separate accounting and financial reporting standards are essential for governments because they operate differently from business enterprises.
Although conservation districts are quasi-governmental agencies and, in Pennsylvania, are not required to implement GASB 34 as long as it is addressed within their audit, the district board voted to adopt this accounting method, beginning with the 2013 audit, which was done by Delisi, Keenan & Associates, P.C. That accounting firm’s Financial Analysis of the District as a Whole can be viewed here.
