Tookany/Tacony Frankford Watershed
Jenkintown Borough is a part of the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford (TTF) Watershed Partnership. The TTF acts as the crucial link connecting residents, businesses and government as neighbors and stewards of this impaired, but critically important watershed in the Philadelphia metro region. Through educational programming, community outreach, networking services, and project coordination, TTF facilitates, supports, and initiates efforts to restore the health of the watershed, and to mobilize its communities as watershed stewards.
For more information about the TTF, including information on how your household can help and tips and education visit the organization's website, which may be accessed HERE.
