Who We Are:
The LRWA is a non-profit Pennsylvania corporation, incorporated in 1997. We are a cohesive group of individual citizens, businesses, farmers, conservation organizations and local, state and federal government representatives. We have joined together to a common purpose; a comprehensive approach to continual water quality within the Lititz Run Watershed.
What Is A Watershed?
A watershed is the land that water flows across or under on its way to a stream, river or lake. We are all a part of a watershed community. The decisions we make daily regarding the way we treat the soil, water, air, plants and animals around us affects our watershed as well as larger watersheds downstream. The Lititz Run begins in Lititz Springs Park, flows east and south through Lititz Borough and Warwick Township picking up flows from the Santo Domingo Creek, Hubers Run and numerous springs. Eventually it flows into the Conestoga River which in turn flows into the Chesapeake Bay. Along the way it flows through the Millport conservancy, where hikers and fisherman alike enjoy the trails that are maintained by the Alliance. Lititz Run Stream Clean-up day is an essential piece to preserving this beautiful stretch of clean water in Lititz.
