[33 Pa.B. 4311]
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Department), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation has approved the Turtle Creek Watershed Conservation Plan (Plan) and is placing Turtle Creek, the watershed and all tributaries covered in the Plan in Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties on the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Registry (Registry).
The Turtle Creek Watershed Association 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 Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Program requirements have been satisfied and places the following on the Registry:
1. The watershed area of Turtle Creek (Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties), from the headwaters to its confluence with the Monongehela River--147.41 square miles.
2. All tributary streams within the Turtle Creek Watershed.
This action becomes effective August 30, 2003. Projects identified in the Plan become eligible for implementation, development or acquisition grant funding through the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Program.
A copy of the final Plan is available for review at the Turtle Creek Watershed Association, 325 Commerce Street, Suite 204, Wilmerding, PA 15148-1260, (412) 829-2817, and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, 6th floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101, (717) 787-7672.
