Susquehanna Coalition Receives Federal Grant

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The federal government will provide $300,000 for a program designed to reduce agricultural runoff reaching the Susquehanna River.

A grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation has been approved for the Upper Susquehanna Coalition.

The coalition is a network of soil and water conservation districts in New York and Pennsylvania.

The organization’s mission is to protect and improve water quality in the Upper Susquehanna River Basin.

Congressman Richard Hanna, who announced the grant, said the funding will help ensure “our national treasures are kept clean and viable for generations to come.”

The Upper Susquehanna Coalition is expected to use the money to continue efforts to reduce nutrient and sediment loads in the region’s streams which feed into the river.
