SUEZ PARTNERS WITH RESOURCE PROTECTION GROUPS AND
FIELD & STREAM FOR ANNUAL COMMUNITY EVENT APRIL 1

EVENT COINCIDES WITH OPENING DAY OF TROUT SEASON IN SOUTHCENTRAL

PENNSYLVANIA

The public is invited to participate in the 16th annual “Trout Day” environmental community event held by SUEZ on April 1 from 7:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. to enhance watershed protection. The company is partnering with the Yellow Breeches Watershed Association (YBWA) and Field & Stream to accommodate the influx of anglers and boaters who fish along the banks of the Yellow Breeches Creek in Fairview Township, York County, on property owned by SUEZ.

The free event coincides with the official opening of trout season in Southcentral Pennsylvania. Educational information related to watershed protection, recycling and boating safety will be shared with visitors.

A creekside clean-up will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. in front of the SUEZ Rabold Water Treatment Plant beside the stone arch bridge at the convergence of Limekiln and Slate Hill Roads in Fairview Township. The clean-up will be facilitated in cooperation with Project Clean Stream and Great American Clean-up of Pennsylvania. Gloves, vests and trash bags will be provided.

“SUEZ has partnered with YBWA for each of the past 16 years to encourage anglers, boaters and hikers who frequent the watershed to be mindful of the need to recycle,” said Bob Manbeck, SUEZ Pennsylvania Operations Public Affairs Manager. “For the past three years, we’ve partnered with Project Clean Stream to enhance environmental protection and promote a greater appreciation for drinking water sources.”

Field & Stream will provide give-away items and arborist/horticulturalist Bob Carey will also provide environmental preservation information to visitors during the event.

The Yellow Breeches Creek is the primary source of supply for the more than 35,000 people served by SUEZ in portions of Cumberland and York Counties. The Yellow Breeches Creek Watershed encompasses over 200 square miles in Adams, Cumberland and York Counties.

Free refreshments will be served. Anyone intending to participate in the creekside clean-up should meet at the tent by 9:45 a.m. for safety instructions and provision of equipment.
