2011 Watershed Management Project Assistance Program
The Huff Run Watershed Restoration Partnership (HRWRP) is a local citizen's group working with many partners to clean up the Huff Run and its watershed as well as conduct educational programs to involve the community. Due to their efforts, positive changes have been realized in both water quality and local awareness of conservation practices.
The major pollution concern in the watershed is acid mine drainage caused by abandoned coal mines.
Funding assistance is needed to continue conservation education programs in this area.
Assistance was requested for materials and costs associated with annual field trips, community festivals, watershed tours, Huff Run's environmental children's club and biannual newsletters.
Total Project Cost: $23,355
Requested Grant: $12,050
Awarded Grant: $10,475
