Programs: This is a major residential stormwater management demonstration project.  Phase I, completed in 2006, was funded by 3 Rivers Wet Weather and installed 500 Canadian Riversafe barrels on homes throughout the watershed.  Phase II, begun in 2007, is funded by the R.K. Mellon Foundation and the PA Dept. of Environmental Protection through the Growing Greener Program.  Phase II features a re-designed 133 gallon barrel manufactured locally from recycled plastic and includes monitoring protocols to help determine how effective rain barrels are as a stormwater mitigation tool.

Mission:

The mission of the Nine Mile Run Watershed Association is to ensure the restoration and protection of the Nine Mile Run watershed through citizen engagement, demonstration projects and advocacy.  Since 2001, NMRWA has fostered environmental stewardship and provided communities and individuals with innovative solutions for stormwater management and other environmental challenges.  Our programs complement the amazing transformation of Nine Mile Run and serve as models for other watersheds.
