Nearly $1M in state grants will address mine drainage, stormwater in Westmoreland

The Turtle Creek Watershed Association will use a state Growing Greener grant to support a planned study of the many abandoned mine drainage discharges that pollute the creek and its tributaries. One of the worst is this discharge that pumps iron into Brush Creek in Irwin.

The Turtle Creek Watershed stretches across 147 square miles, straddling Westmoreland and Allegheny counties.
