LOYALSOCK TOWNSHIP, LYCOMING COUNTY(WBRE/WYOU-TV) – The spotlight has been on Loyalsock Creek, as it recently won Pennsylvania’s 2018 River of the Year.
But now, the spotlight is shining on it for a different reason – one that area residents aren’t too happy about.
“I would like to see it protected. I’m asking that it be protected for the benefit of the people that live here and the people that visit here,” said Neighbor of Loyalsock Creek, Karen Frock.
This is Loyalsock Creek.
64 miles of water, flowing all the way from the West Branch Susquehanna River into Sullivan and Lycoming Counties.
Community members say this will affect the wildlife in the area.
“We probably have more animas han we do people and this is a big resource for hunting, fishing throughout our entire counties,” said Rauff.
Although nothin is set and stone, neighbors tell me this is something that will create a permanent scar on their beloved view.
“If this can be stopped, we are hoping to set the precedent,” said Jarmoska.
