Susquehanna (7)

The Susquehanna River Basin – from Cooperstown, N.Y., to the Chesapeake Bay – is one of the nation's most flood-prone watersheds, experiencing on average $150 million in damages each year. The Susquehanna system provides for early flood warnings to help save lives and reduce property damages.

The consensus building approach used in this visioning process established multiple priorities aimed to achieve and maintain a healthy Conewago Creek Watershed.

The Conewago Creek drains 510 square miles of steep mountain terrain, broad agricultural valleys, lush deciduous and coniferous forests, and several growing communities. As one of the largest subwatersheds within the Lower Susquehanna River drainage, the Conewago Creek has potential to greatly affect the condition of the Chesapeake Bay.

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission is an agency with a mission - management of the water resources of the basin under comprehensive watershed management and planning principles.
