IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING
Conewago Creek Restrictions
Effective July 2, 2015
ADAMS COUNTY—Following discussions with the Department of Environmental Protection or “DEP” and based on current conditions on the Conewago Creek, the County is advising municipalities along the Creek that recreational restrictions on fishing, boating and swimming may be lifted at this time.
These restrictions were put in place following the Miller Chemical plant fire on Monday, June 8, 2015 when runoff from the site made its way into the waterway. Since that time, DEP and another subcontractor have conducted independent regular water sample testing. Following discussions with DEP officials, Adams County emergency services officials are comfortable that the ban on recreational use of the Conewago can be lifted.
