The Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area recently distributed grants totaling $378,671 to nine projects that will improve water quality in the Schuylkill River. Local rivers and streams such as the Schuylkill River have an impact on the entire Delaware River Basin.
The Schuylkill River Restoration Fund grants were awarded to six projects that will focus on stormwater runoff, abandoned mine drainage and agricultural pollution. Also awarded were three land transaction grants that will help preserve critical open space. The project includes streambank stabilization, increased riparian buffer along the creek, and cattle fencing. | READ MORE
