in 1981, CrCWA has completed a DCNR "Watershed Conservation
Plan." We are now completing a "Non-Point Source Pollution
Assessment." CrCWA worked with the Army Corps on an embayment
project at the outflow of the dam to create parking, picnic
area, rest rooms, fishable waters, and a handicapped fishing
pier. CrCWA has constructed numerous stream bank stabilization/
fish habitat projects along Plum Creek, and Cherry Run, Falcon
Park, and Campbell's Run. We participate in the annual ORSANCO
"River Sweep" project, cleaning up trash, and the
Pa Fish and Boat (PA F&B) , “Adopt-A-Lake” program,
building a variety of fish habitat structures in Keystone Lake.
We have also created habitat structures (brush piles) in Crooked
Creek Lake. In cooperation with PA F&B, we also built the
Rosston public boat launch, the only one in Pool #6. We have
constructed numerous passive wetland treatment areas for treatment
of mine discharge: Tanoma Bore Hole, Fort Armstrong Horseman's
Association facility, Myers/Runninger Flats, Keystone Lake Wetlands.
Each July, beginning in 1985, CrCWA has hosted, an Annual Fish
Fry and Picnic for our members, friends, and the community.
We actively support the Crooked Creek Environmental Learning
Center and the High School National Envirothon Competition.
CrCWA Board of Directors meets on the third Tuesday of every
month. The meetings are held at 7 p.m. in the Armsdale Administration
Building, Rt 85, Kittanning, PA, conference room 109. You are
welcome to attend and participate. Any ideas for making improvements
to the watershed are continually needed and welcomed.
