several streams around here have that done and we now have wild brookies again in them.

Babb Creek Watershed Association -- Lycoming County




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2010 Winner
Babb Creek had been polluted by acid mine drainage for over 100 years and has negatively affected the Pine Creek below the town of Blackwell. Local residents formed the Babb Creek Watershed Association and through partnerships with DEP, DCNR, the Arnot Sportsmen, and many other supporting organizations, undertook 18 separate projects with a combined budget of nearly $8 million.

The group managed operations of a large one-of-a-kind water treatment facility which uses a byproduct from limemaking to treat a very large volume abandoned mine discharge. Through their efforts, five miles of Pine Creek and 14 miles of Babb Creek have been removed from EPA’s list of impaired waters and the creek now supports a thriving trout fishery.

The NY DEC has been liming a few of the lakes up in the ADK quite a while now.

Liming of different systems isn't nothing new,been going on for years...20+

The legal introduction of smallies and the illegal introduction of chain pickerel we be another nail in the coffin for our brookies and salmon.Our waterways are small and alot are all connected directly.Between the bucket biologests,barley tolerable waters and fishing pressure....it's going to be a struggle for our natives to survive.

I'm blamming this snow I'thats falling right now for this post.
