Everything needs clean water; from humans, to livestock, to wildlife. One of the main driving forces behind what we do is ensuring that Fulton County has clean water. Our Pennsylvania Constitution states “The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment”.
Aside from some potential air pollution impacts, our Fulton County streams and ground water begin clean. Very little water flows into Fulton County, we are at the “top” of the watershed and if our waters are impaired, it occurred here.
The Conservation District works diligently to identify impaired waters and to assist in their remediation. By assisting homeowners, agricultural operations, contractors, townships, small businesses, and other entities, we look at ways to prevent water pollution and to clean up waterways that have become contaminated. We urge you to join us in ensuring that all life in Fulton County enjoys pure water!
