The Turtle Creek Watershed and Airshed

 A series of creeks, rivers, and traveling air pathways that encompass the majority of Southwest Pennsylvania

Communities of the Turtle Creek Watershed

Although TCWAC+'s scope reaches the majority of SWPA, the Turtle Creek Watershed is the heart of our sustainable development efforts. The watershed makes up the suburbs east of Pittsburgh in east Allegheny County and west Westmoreland county. It reaches 32 municipalities (listed below) and over 320,000 individuals of all ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds. In creation of TCWAC+, we organized around the watershed and airshed in recognition of how our actions are interconnected by geological features, not political lines. How we treat the air and water affects everyone downwind and downstream.
