PA Campaign for Clean Water

Formed in 2002, the Campaign is a coalition of over 130 environmental, conservation, sporting, and religious groups in support of federal and state policies to protect and restore PA's water resources.

Water is one of PA's premier natural resources, with 83,184 miles of streams and rivers, 161,445 acres of ponds and lakes, over 403,000 acres of wetlands, and 47 trillion gallons of groundwater. These resources are vital to the quality of life in our communities, providing drinking water for millions and supporting countless industries. Having clean water is extremely important to PA's economy, with fishing activities alone generating $4.7 billion a year in revenue and supporting 43,000 jobs."

 

Support Buffers 100, a proposal by the PA Campaign for Clean Water, to reduce erosion, pollution, flooding, and drought. "A healthy buffer is filled with native trees, shrubs, and ground covering plants and is wide enough to filter pollution, hold and absorb flood waters, and create healthy habitat." 

 

Susquehanna River Heartland Coalition for Environmental Studies SRHCES

SRHCES is an emerging watershed organization whose geographic focus is the entire Susquehanna River West Branch and the lower North Branch watersheds in Pennsylvania. Organized in 2004 by the Forum for Pennsylvania’s Heartland, SRHCES exists to promote collaboration in research, provide environmental education, improve water quality, and address other environmental concerns related to the Susquehanna River Watershed. SRHCES includes college/university faculty from seven area institutions of higher education, representatives from government agencies, and community organizations.
