Conemaugh Valley Conservancy River in Johnstown

STATE OF THE KISKI-CONEMAUGH RIVER WATERSHED

The purposes of this project were to quantify changes in this watershed since the original KC Rivers Conservation Plan was published in 1999, provide an update to the 120 recommendations made in that plan, and offer new recommendations as we continue the good works that have turned many of our streams and rivers to net-alkaline, fish-rich waterways.
