Which stream looks healthier to you? The answer is clear. Without a streamside buffer, heavy rainfall can erode streambanks and cause pollution to run off into waterways.

Streamside buffers stabilize banks and filter out pollution, resulting in cleaner water and healthier land.

Last month went to our township's meeting regarding our very very high sewer bill. This is in Berks county and the township is in high debt from prior yrs. I am paying 345.29 per qtr for sewer. My water is separate. So, can Penn Vest help maybe with a new lower loan and longer time for my township. New resident, new home and we are paying for past yrs mess. I also wrote to Attorney General's office and did get a reply back. They cannot help, so just searching for a fix as a concerned citizen and homeowner.
