You probably know that York County is rich in waterways, with nearly 2,000 miles of creeks, streams, and the Susquehanna River all meandering through our diverse communities.
But did you know?
- More than 350 miles of York County rivers and streams are polluted or "impaired."
- Many of these polluted waterways feed drinking water supplies and serve as areas where children play. These dirty waters can pose a public health risk.
- Polluted rivers and streams also threaten our most prized freshwater sport fish; throughout the state, we're already seeing how pollution affects species like smallmouth bass and brook trout.
We can fix it!
There are steps we can take to secure a legacy of clean water, public health, and a thriving local economy.
Please join us in creating a bright future for York County.
