Fall Clean Up at the AJCA Recap

On Wednesday Sept 23rd memebes from Monocacy TU, Friends of Johnston, and the Monocacy Creek Watershed Association all gathered to tackle a few projects on the stream.  One group tackled the removal on invasive plants, and another took on a huge willow tree that was blocking the creek.  The groups made some great progress and even got some coverage from 69NEWS.

TU National Meeting Conservation Tour Recap

AMD Entering Lackawanna River
The TU National Meeting was held this past Thursday- Sunday in downtown Scranton, PA.  On Thursday, chapter member Todd Griffith joined a conservation tour which consisted of several sites that highlighted local projects.  The fist stop was the Old Forge Bore Hole, which is a 44inch several hundred foot deep hole drilled by the Army Core of Engineers in 1961.  The hole is used to relieve groundwater pressure that was caused by the flooding of coal tunnels by the Susquehanna River.  The Bore Hole drains about 60 MILLION gallons of mine drainage PER DAY.  For the past 50 years.

The second stop was a project to protect a small tributary that passed through a working cattle farm.

Last but not least was a visit to some gas drilling operations, with representatives explaining the process.  TU's own Katy Dunlap was on hand to ask specific questions.

A thanks to Todd Griffith for joining the tour ans taking the pictures.
