   The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation has approved the Upper West Branch Susquehanna River Conservation Plan (Plan) and is placing the Upper West Branch Susquehanna River, the watershed and all tributaries covered in the Plan, in Cambria, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton and Indiana Counties, on the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Registry (Registry).

   The Cambria County Conservation & Recreation Authority submitted the Plan and other required information to gain Registry status.

   After review of the Plan and other information, the DCNR has determined that the Keystone Rivers Conservation Program requirements have been satisfied and places the following on the Registry:

   1.  The watershed area of the Upper West Branch Susquehanna River from its headwaters in Cambria County to the confluence of Sinnemahoning Creek in Clinton County--1,607 square miles.

   2.  All tributary streams in the Upper West Branch Susquehanna River watershed.

   This action becomes effective, December 1, 2001. Projects identified in the Plan become eligible for additional planning, development or acquisition grant funding through the Keystone Rivers Conservation Program.
