West Norriton, Sept. 20 – State Rep. Tim Briggs, D-Montgomery, today announced that $89,893 in state funding was awarded to support stream restoration and floodplain reconnection of an unnamed tributary located in West Norriton Township.
“I am pleased to see a responsible investment in the quality of our waterways,” Briggs said. “I have been personally involved in stream restoration and ensuring a clean water supply since I began my tenure as a state representative. This project is essential to the health of Indian Run and the ecosystems around it.”
Briggs said the proposed project will stabilize the streambanks and reconnect the unnamed tributary to the floodplain to reduce sediment and nutrient that flow downstream to Indian Run.
Indian Run is listed as impaired on the 303(d) list of waters due to siltation and golf course land use. A total of 775 linear feet will be restored of the Unnamed Tributary to Indian Creek at the township's Centennial Park.
Funding was granted through the Commonwealth Financing Authority Watershed Restoration Protection Program. CFA is an independent agency of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.
