The Evergreen Conservancy recently received the Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for its work on the Tanoma Passive Abandoned Mine Discharge Remediation Trompe.

It was one of 21 organizations in the state representing 16 projects that represent the best in innovation, collaboration and public service in environmental stewardship, according to the DEP.

Improvements to the existing Tanoma passive treatment system increased the amount of iron oxide removed from Crooked Creek to help rejuvenate the water quality and maintain its designation as a cold water fishery. Educational programs inform citizens on how the system works and on the importance of acid mine drainage remediation.
