The Countywide Action Plan (CAP) is a comprehensive plan set forth to improve water quality on a local level. It seeks to implement planned projects to solve water quality problems unique to each county–while simultaneously improving the quality of the Chesapeake Bay. The initiatives outlined in the plan look to protect local resources, improve community health, and restore impaired streams to healthy conditions.
Since the beginning of 2021, Blair, Cambria, Fulton, and Huntingdon Counties have been working together to draft a Countywide Action Plan. We are excited to announce this document is open for public comment and we are looking for your feedback. If you would like to provide written comment, please do so here. https://forms.gle/ndxTtFfMzoxqBRGPA. For more information on the Countywide Action Plan please check out this introductory video. Below you can find the draft Countywide Action Plan, along with BMP Scenarios from each of the counties and a summary document highlighting the top 5 initiatives.
Southern Alleghenies Planning and Development Commission (SAP&C) has contracted with HRG to prepare a CAP plan for four counties: Blair, Cambria, Fulton, and Huntingdon. With funding from the PA Chesapeake Bay Program, we received a Community Clean Water Action Plan (CCWAP) Coordinator grant to act as the staff entity and coordinator of the multi-county CAP process.
The Countywide Action plan is a living document that will evolve over time until 2025. We are constantly looking for new partners to become involved in the implementation of the CAP. If you would like to become involved, please fill out the survey: https://publicinput.com/CountywideActionPlan
