French Creek Watershed Conservation Plan

[33 Pa.B. 1371]

   The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Department), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation, has approved the French Creek Watershed Conservation Plan (Plan) and is placing the French Creek, the watershed and all tributaries covered in the Plan in Crawford, Erie, Mercer and Venango Counties on the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Registry (Registry).

   The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy submitted the Plan and other required information to gain Registry status.

   After review of the Plan and other information, the Department has determined that the Keystone Rivers Conservation Program (Program) requirements have been satisfied and places the following on the Registry:

   1.  The watershed area of French Creek (Crawford, Erie, Mercer and Venango Counties) from the Pennsylvania/New York border to its confluence with the Allegheny River--1,125 square miles.

   2.  All tributary streams within the French Creek Watershed.

   This action becomes effective March 15, 2003. Projects identified in the Plan become eligible for implementation, development or acquisition grant funding through the Program.

   A copy of the Plan is available for review at the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, 209 Fourth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222-2075, (412) 288-2777; and at the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, 6th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101, (717) 787-7672.

   Maps and supporting data are on file at The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.
