   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has approved the following wetland restoration projects for funding under the Pennsylvania Wetland Replacement Project (PWRP). The PWRP is a jointly managed fund between the Department and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation established to offset wetland losses. Construction for the three projects is anticipated to begin in early fall, 1998. Further information may be obtained by contacting Kelly Heffner, Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Waterways, Wetlands and Erosion Control, P. O.

Project No. P13D01-001

   Sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Skopic, the primary objective of the 5-acre wetland restoration in Subbasin 13D (the Potomac Watershed) is wildlife habitat. An additional benefit is water quality improvement to Marsh Creek by intercepting runoff from adjacent farm fields buffering the tributary to Marsh Creek by detaining sediment and nutrients associated with agriculture. Also, in the area adjacent to the creek, trees and shrubs will be planted to create a wooded floodplain. The project is located in Adams County.

Project No. D03H15-001

   Sponsored by the Piersol family and in conjunction with the construction of the Honey Brook Golf Club, the primary objective of the 1.5 acre wetland restoration in Subbasin 3H (the Lower Delaware Watershed) is wildlife habitat. This project will restore wetlands previously drained by agricultural activities. The site will be seeded with an emergent wetland seed mix. The project is located in Honey Brook Township, Chester County.

Project No. S07J36-001

   Sponsored by Lititz Run Watershed Alliance, the objective of the 1.9 acre wetland restoration in Warwick Township, Lancaster County in Subbasin 7, the Lower Susquehanna River Watershed, is to improve water quality. The Lititz Run Watershed is identified as impaired waters on the Commonwealth's Section 303(d) list as a stream that does not meet water quality standards. The goal of this project is to improve the water quality of the Santo Domingo Creek by polishing stormwater from adjacent stormwater basins and trapping nutrients from adjacent agricultural land runoff. The restored wetlands will be part of a riparian buffer restoration and will provide wildlife habitat and educational opportunities within an industrial setting. The project is located in Warwick Township, Lancaster County.
