Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership
In 2000, PWD launched the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership (TTF), a groundbreaking effort to connect diverse stakeholders as neighbors and stewards of the watershed. The partnership was integral in developing the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Integrated Watershed Management Plan (TTFIWMP), a blueprint for restoring this urban stream into a community asset while addressing the mandated requirements of the Federal Clean Water Act and the Federal Stormwater Permit Program (MS4).
In 2005, under PWD’s leadership, the Partnership formally incorporated as an independent nonprofit, composed of environmental organizations, community groups, government entities, and other watershed stakeholders. Now the Partnership has embarked on implementing the TTFIWMP and advancing a wide range of initiatives incorporating the help of community volunteers for the good of the watershed.
