Memorial Park – Poorhouse Run Stream Restoration

City of York, York County, PA

Streambank restoration along an unnamed tributary to Codorus Creek, colloquially known as Poorhouse Run, included approximately 3,782 linear feet of degraded stream channel in a predominantly urban watershed. In addition, 1,900 linear feet of porous pavement trail and pedestrian bridge were installed. The work spanned three properties, two owned by York City and one by York City School District. The site is in York City, York County, flowing through York City’s Veteran’s Memorial Park. It continues onto York City School District property before entering a culvert at the downstream extents, where the system is piped underground until its confluence with Codorus Creek. The primary purpose of this project was to remove legacy sediment from the floodplain to restore pre-settlement conditions fully.
