Approval of Wissahickon Creek River Conservation Plan
[30 Pa.B. 4441]
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation has approved the Wissahickon Creek River Conservation Plan and is placing the Wissahickon Creek, the watershed and all tributaries covered in the Plan in Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties, on the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Registry (Registry).
The Fairmount Park Commission, City of Philadelphia, submitted the Wissahickon Creek River Conservation Plan and other required information to gain Registry status.
After view of the Plan and other information, the DCNR has determined that the Keystone Rivers Conservation Program requirements have been satisfied and places the following on the Registry:
1. The watershed area of Wissahickon Creek (Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties) from the headwaters to its confluence with the Schuylkill River--64 square miles.
2. All tributary streams within the Wissahickon Creek Watershed.
This action becomes effective today, August 26, 2000. Projects identified in the Wissahickon Creek River Conservation Plan become eligible for implementation, development or acquisition grant funding through the Keystone Rivers Conservation program.
