Pittsburgh NESA takes on lake rebuilding at Camp Anawanna.

With the help of Eagle Scout – Bruce McElhaney (President) Maxxco Inc., Pittsburgh NESA began the arduous task of rebuilding the lake at Camp Anawanna. The lake was mostly destroyed years back with damaging runoff as an upper lake was breached and emptied. After years of sitting mostly drained with excessive silt build up and a severely damaged spillway, efforts are underway to excavate the lake, rebuild the spillway and breathe new life into the lake.
