Green Projects - Clean Water - Powdermill Run Restoration
Funded by a 2006 PA DEP Growing Greener Grant, the Mercer County Conservation District completed a much-needed stream restoration project on an unnamed tributary to Powdermill Run in the lower French Creek Watershed. This successful project included restoration of 2,700 feet of stream bank in French Creek Township, Mercer County, in accordance with the recommendations of the French Creek Watershed Conservation Plan. An additional 27,000 feet of riparian buffer was also created. The project will ultimately prevent about 700 tons of sediment from entering the watershed each year.
