Virtual Tours

Watershed Virtual Tour

This virtual tour in Google Earth will fly you from the mouth of the Pennypack to its headwaters, giving an overview of the watershed's natural and historic landmarks as well as PWD's various projects. Find out where we're restoring streams, removing dams, creating tidal wetlands and implementing green stormwater design such as pervious pavement, tree trenches and rain gardens.
