Buffalo Creek Protection Plan
The approximately 164-square mile Buffalo Creek watershed is located in western Washington County, Pennsylvania and Brooke and Ohio counties in West Virginia. In early 2003, The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy Watershed Conservation Program was contracted by the Buffalo Creek Watershed Association and Washington County Watershed Alliance to complete the Buffalo Creek Watershed Assessment and Protection Plan. Funding was made possible through a DEP Growing Greener Grant.
The plan includes results of field surveys of the health and diversity of both terrestrial and aquatic natural resources, information about threats to both water quality and natural habitats, and accompanying recommendations to be used by public and private entities in the Buffalo Creek watershed.
Completed in June 2005, the plan can be viewed in summary form by downloading the PDF.
