Firm Uses HD Video and GPS to Map Cure for Pennsylvania's Conowingo Creek

Trout Unlimited is sponsoring an effort to restore Conowingo Creek’s 34-mile drainage to something of its previous glory. The consulting firm they hired filmed the creek bed with high-definition video to help map out trouble spots. “Phosphorus, contained in fertilizers and manure, can chemically stress fish, and goose an overabundance of underwater vegetation, which robs oxygen needed by fish and the aquatic insects they depend on for food. Yet the main branch is fed with nearly two dozen tributaries, some of them spring-fed and pristine water.” Ad Crable on Lancaster Online.
