How Clean Are Streams In Your County?

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation-PA has a new online tool available to help you find out which streams in your county do not meet water quality standards.
About 19,000 miles of Pennsylvania waters are impaired. Agriculture is the largest source of pollution to the Commonwealth’s streams and rivers.   The second leading cause of pollution in Pennsylvania is acid mine drainage from the legacy of coal mining in parts of the state.
*These counties are already part of the Clean Water Counts! Campaign.
