Photo: Butler County TourismConnoquenessing Creek has been nominated for Pennsylvania’s River of the Year! It was 1 of 5 nominations picked out of hundreds of submissions. Over time this local waterway had been neglected and abused, leading to its rating as the 2nd most polluted waterway in America in 2000. Since then through Allegheny Aquatic Alliance and other organizations’ efforts, significant positive changes have been made to this creek and have resulted in the restoration of it. Now we have the opportunity to show our appreciation to this precious waterway by making it the River of the Year! We each have the ability to do this by simply voting for the Connie! The voting period is now until 12/22. It is such a simple yet powerful way to show your support for this vital local waterway. Help us spread the word and bring the positive attention to the Connoquenessing Creek that it deserves!
