The growth of watershed associations is increasing in Pennsylvania, utilizing dedicated people and local resources to address water quality and a variety of pollution concerns. These associations represent a significant change in the way we are approaching water quality, and present a more committed, long-term solution for monitoring and sustaining a focus in our watersheds. It is hoped that these successful efforts will prove useful to newly formed watershed associations, and serve to inspire greater pollution prevention measures.
