TCWA's Focus

Water quality, and often quantity, represent more than just an environmental issue. They have become economic burdens, health risks, and social problems that degrade our standard of living. Abandoned mine drainage (AMD), non-point source pollution, stormwater runoff, erosion, streambank stabilization, sedimentation, and invasive species are some of the biggest problems facing our watershed.


It’s Time to Race!

Duck Race, that is! Our second annual duck race fundraiser is coming up on June 22, 2019 at Irwin Park in Irwin! Yes, that’s a new location from last year. We are partnering with Irwin Borough for their first ever community day! Tickets to “adopt” a duck for the race are $5 per duck, which can be purchased in advance at FTMSA in Murrysville, the Irwin Boro office in Irwin, and the Westmoreland Conservation District in Greensburg. Ducks will also be sold the day of the event. The event itself is free for all ages with a number of activities to enjoy including: face painting, live music by Tres Lads, refreshments & lunch food, Chinese auction basket raffles, interactive environmental education booths, and of course the duck race itself! There is a brand new playground, pavilion, walking trail, amphitheater, basketball courts, tennis courts, and baseball field at the park. We will have basketballs, hula hoops, chalk, Frisbees, and cornhole for attendees to use. More information is available on the flyer above, or by calling 724-837-5271 x117.
*If you are a business or individual interested in becoming a sponsor or donating items for the Chinese auction or duck race prizes, click here for the sponsorship/donation letter and form.

The next TCWA board meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be at the FTMSA office located at 3001 Meadowbrook Rd, Murrysville, PA 15668.
