Catawissa Creek and abandoned mine drainage

Hello. We could use your help in addressing issues in a nearby waterway. The Catawissa Creek’s aquatic resources have been devastated by abandoned mine drainage (AMD), which spews acidity and aluminum deposits into this tributary of the Susquehanna River. It is the only finalist in the entire Susquehanna watershed for the state’s River of the Year voting. A win would shed some much-needed light on AMD issues across the region and help bridge the final gaps to a treatment system that will help restore this potential world-class fishery.
You can vote (once per email … and emails are not collected for future promotions) here:

Thank you for voting and encouraging others in your circles to do the same. Together, we can really make a difference for our natural resources. – Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper John Zaktansky
