Slippery Rock Creek

Slippery Rock Creek

The Slippery Rock Creek Watershed is located North of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This 410-square mile watershed flows south westerly from its headwaters through McConnells Mill State Park and eventually empties into the Beaver River which flows into the Ohio River.

Slippery Rock Creek is impacted by numerous sources of non-point pollution. Abandoned mine drainage remains (AMD) the primary source of this pollution. The Slippery Rock Watershed Coalition has been actively engaged in addressing AMD through land reclamation and the installation of passive treatment systems.
