What is the Allegheny Watershed Alliance?

Watershed groups are essential for on the ground knowledge and action in our watersheds. Groups provide structure and actions in places where agencies aren’t working. Unfortunately, watershed groups struggle to complete projects, find volunteers or maintain their nonprofit status. As a response to the difficulties of establishing and maintaining watershed groups, the District is proud to announce the Allegheny Watershed Alliance (AWA). The AWA is the umbrella organization to watershed groups working in Allegheny County to improve our water quality resources and making Allegheny County a healthier place to live. By working together, we can magnify the positive environmental and community efforts of watershed groups, and encourage the growth of new watershed groups across the county.


OUR VISION:
The Allegheny Watershed Alliance envisions a region with healthy and valued water resources supported by a network of engaged and capable watershed groups.


OUR MISSION:
The Allegheny Watershed Alliance is dedicated to the support and development of watershed groups by leveraging technology, building capacity, and creating spaces for partnership.
