Cambria County Conservation District highlights stream restoration projects

October 5, 2019by ncdea

PENNSYLVANIA, Cambria County CD – Flood control is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to the health of local waterways.

During its annual legislative meeting Friday at Kosta’s Restaurant in Ebensburg, the Cambria County Conservation District highlighted completion of projects to date in 2019 to restore streams that have flood control levee systems in place.

The restoration of those streams in Patton, Northern Cambria, Nanty Glo in Cambria County – along with Cherry Tree in Indiana County – is meant to center flowing water, take pressure off of banks to prevent erosion, create a natural ripple for fish and other aquatic life and keep sediment moving instead of depositing.
