Kiskiminetas Watershed

Watershed Association

Mission or Purpose

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the environmental education, recreation, and conservation & rehabilitation of the natural & historical resources of the Kiski River and its tributaries. A 100+ year history of abandoned mine drainage (AMD) left the river lifeless. Today, thanks to the efforts of the KWA and other like-minded environmental organizations, the Kiski has made a remarkable recovery. As the water quality has improved, aquatic life is rebounding with the presence of freshwater mussels, hellbender salamanders, and threatened fish species.
