Lower Snitz Creek Project Complete

After many delays due to weather conditions during 2018, construction work on the 1,200 linear foot restoration project on lower Snitz Creek, just above its confluence with Quittapahilla Creek in the city of Lebanon, was finally completed in February, 2019.

The project, designed by Rocky Powell of Clear Creeks Consulting and constructed by Aquatic Resource Restoration Company, was funded in large part through a grant provided by the PA Fish & Boat Commission.

The project consisted of reconstructing and stabilizing streambanks, narrowing the stream channel and redirecting the streamflow to reduce sedimentation, and building a number of much-needed habitat structures. Installation of new livestock fencing and streambank planting will take place in early spring.
