Laurel Hill Creek named top 10 most endangered rivers in US

Last week, American Rivers named the 38-mile western PA Laurel Hill Creek as the 7th most endangered waterway in the United States. Their report notes declining water levels due to increased domestic and municipal withdrawls, which could gravely threaten the native trout population. A recent article in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review highlights the threats posed to the important waterway, located in the Laurel Highlands, a significant PA tourist destination.
