Springville Township Bottomless Arch

Submitted by Jim Garner, Susquehanna County Conservation District susquehannaarch Springville Township recently installed a bottomless arch stream crossing pipe on Lynn Cemetery Road, with the assistance of the Dirt & Gravel Road Program and the Susquehanna County Conservation District. The concrete arch is a much-needed upgrade from the undersized pipe that was previously in place. The bottomless arch will allow the stream to pass more water and allow for better aquatic passage. The stream is a tributary to White Creek, which is classified a coldwater fishery capable of holding trout in season. This vast improvement is designed to last for decades and help prevent the road from overtopping with water. The installation of this pipe is a great investment in the infrastructure of Springville Township.
