Pre-season Fish Commission Stocking of Blackleggs Creek Set (3/01)

     The PA Fish and Boat Commission will stock Blackleggs Creek on Friday, March 23. The stocking truck will meet at the Conemaugh Township shed sometime between 12pm and 3pm.

$202,000 Coming to Watershed to Treat Big Run #2 (12/14/00)

     The third round of Growing Greener grants were announced on December 14, 2000 and there is wonderful news to report. Our organization has been awarded a grant of over $202,000 to construct a large treatment facility to treat the Big Run #2 discharge! Thanks again Growing Greener! We submitted two proposals for this round with the unapproved proposal being for a small assessment of the Big Run #3 and #9 discharges. If we had to choose which grant we would get, it would have been for the Big Run #2 treatment facility. This brings our total grant awards over the last year to slightly over $267,500! We are on the road to recovery!

Blackleggs Creek Watershed Association Establishes Website (12/00)

    
That's right! Believe it or not, our organization is now on the web, obviously. Through a grant from the Pennsylvania Growing Greener Program, we were able to have a website developed, which will assist us in getting the word out about our efforts and gain much needed support.  Please feel free to browse around the site and read about our efforts to clean up the Blacklegs Creek Watershed. And by the way, check out the Join link to become a member and help us make a difference.
