Cover for web“On Solid Ground” is Now on the Web

The District’s 2014 annual report, “On Solid Ground,” is making its debut on our website this year.

If you don’t receive one but would like to, contact us at receptionist@wcdpa.com.

Homeowner's Stormwater Guide CoverThe Southwesten Pennsylvania’s Homeowner’s Guide to Stormwater is now available.

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.
