Photos from in & around the Turtle Creek Watershed

We're pleased to share with you this new portion of our website where you can view photos from within the Turtle Creek Watershed as well as TCWA activities. If you have photos of recreational activities from within the Watershed we would love to see them! You may e-mail photos and a description to turtlecreekwa@gmail.com




Over the recent years, parts of Westmoreland County have begun to use permeable surfaces to prevent storm water runoff to cause flooding. Here are a few photographs of what that looks like.  

Turtle Creek Watershed Association Board Member, Kevin Kaplan attended the 13th Annual Western Pa Conservancy/ Dominion Watershed Mini Grant Awards Ceremony on April 18, 2017 to accept a $1,500 Mini-grant award to help with the printing cost of trail signage along the Westmoreland Heritage Trail. 


​Pictured on the right are fishermen enjoying Turtle Creek near the B-Y Pond in Trafford. Below you can see a 22" Trout caught near the TCWA Sanders Station Road Fishing Access earlier this year. Congratulations on your personal best Mr. Artie Sinclair!

​​​Time goes by, but fishing along Turtle Creek remains a favorite recreation activity. Decades old, these photos were converted from slides to be placed on our website. Special thanks to long time board member John Mores for sharing the slides! Can you identify the location of these photos?
