Wolf Administration Announces State Investment to Protect Streambanks in McKean County

Harrisburg, PA - The Wolf Administration today announced grant funding to install tens of thousands of feet of streambank fencing in McKean County. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) awarded a grant of $400,000 to the McKean County Conservation District.

Streambank fencing is a great way to reduce erosion and prevent pollution from entering our waterways,” said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “These projects will improve water quality in several watersheds throughout McKean County.”

This 2019 Growing Greener grant will be used to install more than 22,500 feet of streambank fencing, stabilize 8,000 feet of streambank in danger of erosion, and establish eight acres of riparian buffers across ten farms in the county.

One of the largest investments into Pennsylvania’s environment, Growing Greener projects have been instrumental in cleaning up abandoned mine lands, preserving farmland, and protecting and restoring watersheds throughout the commonwealth.

The Growing Greener grant program is supported by the Environmental Stewardship Fund, which receives its funding from landfill tipping fees.
