Tunkhannock Creek Conservation Plan

[28 Pa.B. 5352]

   The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Department), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation has approved the ''Tunkhannock Creek Conservation Plan'' (Plan) and is placing the Tunkhannock Creek, the watershed and all tributaries covered in the Plan in Susquehanna, Lackawanna and Wyoming Counties on the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Registry (Registry).

   On April 9, 1998, the Pennsylvania Environmental Council submitted the Tunkhannock Creek Conservation Plan and other required information to gain Registry status.

   After review of the Plan and other information, the Department has determined that Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Program requirements have been satisfied and places the following on the Registry:

   1.  The watershed area of Tunkhannock Creek (Susquehanna, Lackawanna and Wyoming Counties) from the confluence with the North Branch Susquehanna River to its headwaters--413 square miles.

   2.  All tributary streams within the Tunkhannock Creek watershed.

   This action becomes effective October 24, 1998. Projects identified in the Tunkhannock Creek Conservation Plan become eligible for implementation, development or acquisition grant funding through the PA Rivers Conservation Program.

   A copy of the Final Plan is available for review at:

   Pennsylvania Environmental Council, 129 South Franklin Street, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18766, (717) 408-4997 and

   Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, 6th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101, (717) 787-2316.
