The Wolf Administration has announced grant funding to rehabilitate an acid mine drainage treatment system in Clarion County.
The state Department of Environmental Protection awarded a grant of $93,000 to the Clarion County Conservation District for the project.
The water flows into the Clarion River, a popular destination for boaters and anglers, and the project will be adjacent to the Clarion County Park.
One of the largest investments into Pennsylvania’s environment, Growing Greener projects have been instrumental in cleaning up abandoned mine lands, preserving farmland, and protecting and restoring watersheds throughout the commonwealth.
The Growing Greener grant program is supported by the Environmental Stewardship Fund, which receives its funding from landfill tipping fees.
