We are proud to call the Mon Valley home.
The Monongahela is formed by the confluence of the West Fork River and its “East Fork”—the Tygart Valley River—at Fairmont, West Virginia. The river is navigable its entire length with a series of locks and dams that maintain a minimum depth of 9 feet (2.7 m) to accommodate barges. In Pennsylvania, the Monongahela is met by two major tributaries: the Cheat River, which joins at Point Marion, and the Youghiogheny River, which joins at McKeesport.
MVA serves the Mid-Mon Valley, roughly defined as Elizabeth to Brownsville (North/South) and Smithton to Bentleyville (East/West). The communities that make up this area have a strong manufacturing heritage and though many communities have seen a decline in population, the area is still 100,000 people strong.
The area is also host to a variety of recreational activities, including:
The area is also home to many historical sites, including:
