Though the section of stream may be small, it’s impact can be mighty.
That’s why the Board of Supervisors on January 28 joined other municipalities in adopting the Big Sewickley Creek Watershed Area Rivers Conservation & Stewardship Plan.
A small portion of the southwest corner of the Township is located within the Watershed. The plan aims to educate the public on the watershed’s natural and cultural assets, as well as threats to water quality and property due to flooding. Other areas of focus include natural resource exploration, residential and commercial development, outdated municipal codes, and other potential threats to maintaining the watershed.
Supervisors noted the plan is consistent with the guidelines included in the Cranberry Plan.
