Connoquenessing Creek was just nominated for Pennsylvania’s River of the Year! In 3 days, the “Connie” went from last place to 1st place!
It was 1 of 5 nominations picked out of hundreds of submissions. As we all know, over time this local waterway had been neglected and abused leading to its rating as the 2nd most polluted waterway in America in 2000.
Since then through Allegheny Aquatic Alliance and other organizations’ efforts, significant positive changes have been made to this creek and have resulted in the restoration of it.
Now we have the opportunity to show our appreciation to this precious waterway by making it the River of the Year! We each have the ability to do this by just voting for the Connie!
The voting period is from 11/21-12/22, giving us one month to spread the word and obtain the most votes. It is such a simple yet powerful way to show your support for this vital local waterway.
Together we can reverse the negative stigma that has haunted Connoquenessing Creek!
