Upper and Middle Neshaminy Creek Watershed Conservation Plan
[33 Pa.B. 1373]
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Department), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation, has approved the Upper and Middle Neshaminy Creek Watershed Conservation Plan (Plan) and is placing the Upper and Middle Neshaminy Creek, the watershed and all tributaries covered in the Plan in Bucks and Montgomery Counties on the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Registry (Registry).
The Delaware Riverkeeper Network 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 Upper and Middle Neshaminy Creek (Bucks and Montgomery Counties) from the headwaters of Neshaminy Creek to its confluence with Newtown Creek on the border of Newtown and Northampton Townships in Bucks County--131.5 square miles.
2. All tributary streams within the Upper and Middle Neshaminy Watershed, located north and northwest of the confluence of Neshaminy and Newtown Creeks on the border of Newtown and Northampton Townships in Bucks County.
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 Delaware Riverkeeper Network, P. O. Box 326, Washington Crossing, PA 18977, (215) 369-1188; 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.
