The Schuylkill River needs your help.
Schuylkill River Dredging Project costs have risen from the original $3M to $4.7M.
(The Good news) it is still on the Army Corps of Engineers’ 2017 project list - a major win.
(The Bad news) no federal funding is assigned yet and as a recreational project, rather than commercial, it ranks lower on the Corps current list (of about 30 projects).
PLEASE sign the Sign-Up-Genius petition on the Schuylkill Navy website. Names will be circulated to appropriate political stakeholders (using zip codes). A link to the petition can be found here:
Scroll to the end of the list of names and "X" the small “Sign-Up” box
