The PA Environmental Council Tuesday provided a video update on its projects and initiatives to protect and restore water resources in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania is home to 86,000 miles of rivers and streams, the second most stream miles of of any state in America. Yet, 19 percent of those miles do not support healthy aquatic life, while some are not fishable, swimmable, or drinkable.
That’s where PEC comes in.
PEC works with stakeholders to tackle water quality issues on both the legislative and municipal levels, while promoting the use of green stormwater infrastructure.
Sue Myerov, PEC Program Director for Watersheds, updates the status of PEC’s watershed protection efforts on all levels across the state.
“Our work is critically important, because water is the basis of life, and we should do our best to protect our water resources here in the state and around the world. We do this not just for ourselves, but for our future generations,” said Sue Myerov, Watersheds Program Manager for PEC.
