Public Meeting on Cleaning Streams after Flood Events

In light of the record amounts of precipitation and flooding we have had on many of our local streams, the issue of cleaning out streams to remove debris piles and gravel bars has been a concern to many, and Susquehanna TU has arranged for Dr. Larry Brannaka of the U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service to present a program on scientific practical approaches to post-flooding stream cleaning.  Dr. Brannaka has years of experience in designing and supervising stream restoration projects, and all local and county municipal officials are encouraged to attend this timely presentation.  The meeting is open to the public and will be held on Wednesday, March 13 at 7 pm at the Covenant Central Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, at the rear of 807 West Fourth Street in Williamsport (enter off of Campbell St.)

DEP has issued a booklet, Guidelines for Maintaining Streams in your Community, and can be downloaded here
