Best Management Practices
We endeavor to educate watershed stakeholders about solutions to the problems of the Paxton Creek Watershed. Key to this educaton is an understanding of the Best Managment Practices (BMPs) available to reduce stormwater runoff and enhance surface water infiltration. To learn more about the need for and use of BMPs click here.

PCWEA has developed a list of five action items it believes are necessary to improve the quality of Paxton Creek, its tributaries, and the quality of life within the watershed. These actions are presented in Our Goals.
Meet Our Partners
The PCWEA Partners are of two kinds -- individual persons who have made contributions to environmental enhancement, education, and protection within Paxton Creek watershed; and organizations that support these efforts.
