Title: Giving Credit Where it is Due
Post by: FM on August 24, 2018, 02:25:29 PM
It's no secret that I'm a pretty big critic of the PFBC but I like to be fair about things too. Earlier this week:

I just called the PFBC in Sweet Valley to report the tree over the Union Launch ramp. I expected to find that they were already aware of it, that they had a back log of problems and they would get to it when they found time. However, they hadn't heard, the guy who answered was going to pass it on the the maintenance crew and the enforcement staff so maybe it will get cleaned up sooner rather than later.FM

That was on Wednesday last evening I stopped by the Union Launch on my way to Shickshinny and was thunderstruck to see that the maintenance crew had cleared the fallen tree and plowed the two inch thick deposit of mud in the lot to the sides. So THANK YOU PFBC job well done!

Same at Apple Tree Access too. Looks like the mud was plowed into the river.

I am sure this years rains are like a snowy pattern for Penn DOT. I am sure some of these crews are looking forward to the snowy cold season, so they can get a break for once. Stopped by the ole fishing hole just for a glance tonight. 2 weeks ago when things were moderately high, there was a rather large tree hung up on a rock. Tonight there was no tree. When I use the term tree, this thing was probably 42" high and 2 sub compact suv's long, it was huge. So we as we all know, went from moderately high to really high. Lets hope it slows down from here out. I also ran into a guy who works for the susq river basin commission. They were in Lancaster county on Wednesday, due to the rains they got Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. They counted 8 cows , several pigs and sheep that got caught in the flash flooding and drowned. This has been ridiclious this year. But as other have said, Thank You to the clean up crews.
