The project was engineered and designed by the PF&BC. Also the DCNR and the DEP assisted to make sure the project went well.

This project wouldn’t have happened without the dedicated help from the team at the Venango County Conservation District and some dedicated members with OCTU.

 The project came in approx $11k + dollars and OCTU  was to pay 17.5% of total costs minus any credit for IN-KIND work and/or material. Which OCTU exceeded the 17.5% IN-Kind by almost double. Which will allow OCTU to do other conservation projects with the money we saved.
