The Wissahickon flows through 12 suburban municipalities before entering the Schuylkill River just northwest of Philadelphia. From its headwaters at the Montgomeryville Mall, the Wissahickon faces constant stress from new development, stormwater runoff, and non-point source pollution.
This site explores the issues facing the Wissahickon and what is being done to combat them through videos and modules.
