Four different environmental projects in the 47th Senate District will receive Growing Greener grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, according to Senator Elder Vogel Jr.
The Lawrence County Conservation District will receive $810,283 for the Slippery Rock Watershed Agricultural Restoration project. Stream Restoration Inc., will receive $99,785 towards the Raccoon Creek Bank & Buffer Project. The Allegheny County Conservation District will receive $54,395 for remediation of the Raccoon Creek Streambank. The Beaver County Conservation District will receive $25,667 towards the North Fork Little Beaver Stabilization/Habitat Project II.
“These are great investments by the state helping to protect the natural beauty of our streams and watersheds, as well as improve the quality of life for the residents of this area,” Senator Vogel said. “Partnering with local organizations can make a real difference for our environment.”
Growing Greener remains the largest single investment of state funds in Pennsylvania history to address critical environmental concerns throughout the Commonwealth.
