DRBC Participates in Schuylkill Action Network's Annual Meeting

On Friday, November 15, 2013, over 80 Schuylkill watershed partners gathered for the annual meeting of the Schuylkill Action Network (SAN). The event was held at Reading Area Community College and featured a full day of presentations and discussions on projects that are protecting and restoring the health of the Schuylkill River Watershed.

The morning session featured updates from the SAN workgroups on the projects and activities that were completed over the past year. In the afternoon, the meeting shifted gears to focus on the very important topic of funding and financing source water protection. Presentations were given by Tom Davidock, SAN Coordinator, of the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, Kelly Anderson of the Philadelphia Water Department, and Dan Nees of the University of Maryland Environmental Finance Center. A group discussion followed. The SAN Planning Committee expects to focus on developing a plan for sustainable support for projects, continued coordination, and data management.

Matt Lindenmuth, founder of the Saucony Creek Brewing Company, was on hand to accept SAN's Kevin Munley MVP (Most Valuable Partner) Award. The brewery is donating 15% of profits from the sales of its Stonefly IPA for watershed restoration projects in the Schuylkill watershed.
