Friday 6/5/20 the Bushkill Creek was de-watered from the Buzzi-Unicem
quarry to below the town of Tatamy approximately 1.5 miles. It’s flow
was severely diminished as far down as Easton. This is the 3rd such
dewatering in the last 3 years resulting in fish kills and totally
irresponsible management of a Class A wild brown trout stream. The
latest event resulted in the destruction of thousands of wild brown
trout, countless macro invertebrates and other aquatic life. This is
not fair to the public resource or the landowners and communities down
stream and it is truly a disgrace that our regulatory agencies enable
What is absolutely tragic is this could and should be preventable with proper coordination and leadership.
If you feel this needs to be addressed we urge you to please contact these representatives this week and tell them the Bushkill creek needs to be protected. Also please share this post with as many friends,groups, and public officials as possible.
