Have healthier streams and creeks througout the Shamokin Creek Watershed by the year 2020.
Our vision is to restore the Shamokin Creek watershed so that it supports normal aquatic life. We wish to involve local governemnts, businesses, and citizens in clean-up efforts and to provide opportunities for people to learn about watersheds, abandoned mine land and abandoned mine drainage.
The Shamokin Creek Restoration Alliance (SCRA) is an active and community engaged organization that works to improve the water quality of Shamokin Creek. Running through downtown, the Shamokin Creek has high levels of iron oxide giving it its orange color. SCRA tests for metals and pH in the creek and its tributaries, the group also maintains several water treatment sites. Besides working on water quality the group also works to pick up trash dump sites in the Shamokin area.
