Octoraro Creek Watershed Conservation Plan
[33 Pa.B. 1371]
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Department), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation, has approved the Octoraro Creek Watershed Conservation Plan (Plan) and is placing the Octoraro Creek, the watershed and all tributaries covered in the Plan in Chester and Lancaster Counties on the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Registry (Registry).
The Octoraro Watershed Association has submitted the Plan and other required information to gain Registry status.
After review of the Plan and other information, the Department has determined that the Keystone Rivers Conservation Program (Program) requirements have been satisfied and places the following on the Registry:
1. The watershed area of Octoraro Creek (Chester and Lancaster Counties) from the headwaters to the Pennsylvania/Maryland border--176 square miles.
2. All tributary streams within the Octoraro Creek Watershed.
This action becomes effective March 15, 2003. Projects identified in the Plan become eligible for implementation, development or acquisition grant funding through the Program.
A copy of the Plan is available for review at the Octoraro Watershed Association, 389 Pine Grove Road, Nottingham, PA 19362, (717) 529-2132; and at the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, 6th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101, (717) 787-7672.
