Anyone who fishes, boats, walks or sight sees along the Susquehanna River can improve the water quality by donating to a campaign.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission started the Save Our Susquehanna effort three years ago. With a $10 gift, donors receive a button decorated with a fish taking a lure. Protecting smallmouth bass, for which the river is famous, is a goal of the project. Bass have shown abnormal blotches, and males have developed eggs in their testes from chemicals in the water.
In the first project funded by the S.O.S. drive, the commission stabilized banks on five farms in Northumberland and Montour counties to reduce runoff into Limestone Run, a tributary of the Susquehanna.
