Flooding No Friend To Watershed ConservancyCONSERVANCY INCURRED FLOOD DAMAGE – Last week’s “monster storm that dumped nearly a foot of rain” on the Perkiomen Valley, and caused the Perkiomen Creek to quickly rise from a depth of 1-1/2 feet to more than 16 feet within only hours, created flood damage inside the education building of the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy in Schwenksville, it reported in a Tuesday (July 16, 2019) e-mail to its members and others. The deluge resulted in “the complete loss of our early education discovery room and all of the books, puzzles and learning centers (at top) it housed. We also have thousands of dollars in damage to our conservation equipment and event supplies,” it wrote. “If you have a few extra bucks, please consider sending them our way, the non-profit appealed to donors. “We could certainly use the help!”
