Jacobs Creek Watershed Association (JCWA) was first organized in the 1970’s in an effort to address the severe flooding problems in the Scottdale, PA area. Through the efforts of a small but diligent group of volunteers, JCWA’s founders were able to work with the United States Department of Agriculture-Soil Conservation Service to build three flood control dams: the Acme Dam, the Bridgeport Dam and the Greenlick Dam. These dams have successfully prevented the extreme flooding of the 1960’s and 1970’s and are currently used by area people to fish, canoe, boat and enjoy nature.
