Programs and Services
- Water Quality: The WCWA (Washington County Watershed Alliance) had water monitoring equipment at 26 sites throughout the county. These sites were monitored for conductivity, temperature, and water level every 15 minutes continuously. The information is currently being assessed to help the WCWA determine streams and watersheds that should be priority focus.
- Education: The WCWA provides educational programming to local schools, community groups and the general public. Program topics include water and the water cycle, stream monitoring, macroinvertebrates (stream critters), plankton, and well water workshops. Our goal is to expand our program capacity and topic list.
- Stream Clean ups: The WCWA and its Watershed Associations hold stream and road-side cleanups every year. Helping to reduce the trash that enters our waterways. Already in 2020, we have participated in two events and collected more than 50 bags of trash and multiple tires. All items were disposed of properly. The WCWA plans to expand their number of clean ups going forward.
- Watershed Support: The Watershed Alliance serves as a financial umbrella organization assisting with grant and financial management for individual Watershed Associations. The Associations include Buffalo Creek Watershed Association (BCWA), Chartiers Creek Watershed Association (ChCWA), Cross Creek Watershed Association (CCWA), Independence Conservancy (Raccoon Creek), Ten Mile Creek Watershed Association (TMCWA), and the Upper Wheeling Creek Watershed Association (UWCWA)
