The Brodhead Watershed Association received a $3,000 donation from PPL Electric Utilities in support of its Adopt-a-Stream Program and 26th Annual Membership Celebration.
“As a company that cares about the environment, we are pleased to support the BWA and its ongoing efforts to protect our local streams and drinking water,” said Paul Canevari, PPL’s regional affairs director for the Northeast Region.
“We thank PPL for its ongoing support of our essential work,” said John Smith, BWA president.
The donation will allow the BWA to step up efforts to monitor local streams and protect drinking water. The donation will also support the annual Membership Celebration on October 2 at the Monroe County Campus of Northampton Community College in Tannersville.
The BWA, a nonprofit environmental organization, formed in 1989 as a group of individuals and business owners dedicated to ensuring clean water in Monroe County.
For the past 26 years, BWA’s volunteer Streamwatchers have been testing water quality in the Brodhead, Cherry, Marshalls, McMichael, Paradise and Pocono creeks and their tributaries.
Anyone interested in assisting the BWA protect the community’s water resources is invited to attend the annual Membership Celebration, which will highlight projects that have helped the Pocono area in “Growing Green.”
