Moshannon Creek is a beautiful stream with often terrible water quality. Much of the main stream and some of the tributaries of Moshannon Creek are contaminated by mine drainage from abandoned coal and clay mines. Moshannon Creek's headwaters, and many of the tributary streams in the Moshannon Creek watershed, have clean water and wild trout populations. Our mission can be described very simply as protecting the clean water streams and improving the streams with tainted water.
We are a new organization and we are looking for members and volunteers. We will be surveying the watershed to accurately assess the current health of the different streams. We will be identifying the areas where improvements are needed and the steps to take to make these improvements. We are considering adopting several treatment systems that should be doing a better job of removing mine water contaminants than they currently are because of a lack of maintenance. We will be educating the public about the healthy stream segments and the steps to take to keep them healthy. We need your help in all of these efforts. If you want to participate in these endeavors, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . It is free to join the MCWA in 2019. We will start collecting dues in 2020 after we incorporate.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
