SAVE OUR STREAMS PA

“Every stream and river in Pennsylvania has exceptional qualities and unique attributes.
Not only are they a source of pride and aesthetic beauty, but more importantly, streams provide the drinking water for millions of people. Our streams are one of Pennsylvania’s most valuable resources. Pennsylvania streams provide many opportunities for outdoor recreation and enjoyment. Tourists from around the country travel to Pennsylvania each year to fish our waters. Pennsylvania is also home to thousands of orphan, abandoned, unplugged and lost oil and gas wells. Some of these wells were inadequately plugged years ago with pine trees and materials that have deteriorated over time. On Nov. 1st, 2011 Save Our Streams PA kicked off a ‘Scavenger Hunt’ for locating lost, orphan and abandoned oil and gas wells to promote awareness by photographing and getting GPS locations for these wells and matching the photos with their GPS locations on Google maps that are easily accessible for online viewing.”
