Our Mission

The mission of the Schuylkill Action Network is to improve water resources in the Schuylkill River watershed by working in partnership with local watershed organizations and land conservation organizations, businesses, academics, water suppliers, recreational communities, local governments, and regional, state, and federal agencies to transcend regulatory and jurisdictional boundaries in the strategic implementation of protection measures.

The SAN seeks to achieve this mission through enhanced communication and collaboration and, more specifically, by working cooperatively with interested parties to:

  • Support existing efforts and implement actions to restore and protect water quality in the Schuylkill River watershed;
  • Promote the long-term coordinated stewardship and restoration of the watershed and educate others regarding their roles in protecting the watershed and water supplies;
  • Transfer the experience and lessons learned to other communities; and
  • Enhance intergovernmental communication and coordination by working together on the identification and resolution of environmental issues with shared regulatory responsibility.
