[ARCHIVED] Check Out the Healthy Waters, Healthy Communities Storymap

The DEP Communications Office has launched a multimedia storymap, Healthy Waters, Healthy Communities, in celebration of Chesapeake Bay Watershed Awareness Week. The story map educates Pennsylvanians on the watershed, the many ways it benefits them, and steps they can take--including joining their Countywide Action Plan--to help reduce nutrient and sediment runoff pollution in our local waters. Check it out for tips, printable handouts, and “deep dives” on trees,  water quality monitoring, the recreation and agriculture economies, and other topics. And there are great stories on Pennsylvanians who are making a difference, from the York County homeowner who turned his one-acre suburban yard into a bioswale and raingarden, to the 11 Blair County municipalities partnering on stormwater management, to the Lycoming County farmer whose livestock benefited from stream bank buffers.
