DCWA provides stewardship of the creek, its 80-plus tributaries and the watershed’s related natural resources.

Dunkard Creek is a stream that flows 36.9 miles through Greene County, PA and Monongalia County, WV, near the towns of Mount Morris, PA and Blacksville, WV.  In 1995, the Dunkard Creek Watershed Association, Inc., was created with assistance from the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection in a statewide movement toward public stewardship of natural resources. Until then, most people seldom if ever considered the fact that they were living in a “watershed”. What is a watershed? A geographic area that contains a common outlet, such as a stream, river, lake or wetland, into which water drains. In Pennsylvania, the Greene County Watershed Alliance and Friends of Dunkard Creek provide stewardship for this two-state waterway.
