Description: The Lorberry Wetland Project treated approximately one-third of the flow from the Rowe Tunnel Discharge until the system was decimated by the 2011 floods. The most significant contributor of impairment is an abandoned deep mine discharge from the Rowe Tunnel, which makes up over 75% of the flow of Lorberry Creek. The Rowe Tunnel has been listed as the second largest contributor of iron loading to the entire Swatara Creek basin. The two other major influences on Lorberry Creek are Stumps Run, which provides some assimilation capacity, and the fairly new Shadle Discharge, which is from an active mine and, therefore, considered a point source discharge with a waste load allocation. No known pollutant sources exist downstream of the Shadle Discharge. A limestone diversion well and mine drainage wetland treatment system was installed along Lorberry Creek in 2001.
