Cherry Creek Watershed

Cherry Creek River Conservation Plan

The Cherry Creek River Conservation Plan was developed under a grant from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).  The Plan was completed in 2004 and submitted to, and approved by, DCNR.  Municipal resolutions support-ing the Plan were then sought and received from the four municipalities that include Cherry Valley:  the borough of Delaware Water Gap and Hamilton, Smithfield  and Stroud townships.  Cherry Creek is now eligible for inclusion on the PA Rivers Registry.

The Plan can be viewed, or downloaded, as a pdf file.
