Moshannon Creek Watershed Association
Mission or Purpose
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.
