Clean Rivers Campaign Day!
We are proud to announce that Tuesday, April 23, 2013 was named Clean Rivers Campaign Day by the Pittsburgh City Council! Councilman Bill Peduto recognized the Campaign for our work in championing large-scale green infrastructure strategies through education, advocacy, and civic engagement, and awarded us with the proclamation in the City Council chambers. We appreciate the council’s recognition of our work and look forward to continuing to partner with them to work for green solutions that address our sewer problems while bringing the most benefits to our community. In honor of Clean Rivers Campaign Day, get involved today! Endorse the campaign, check out our upcoming events, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Thank you for being a part of the Clean Rivers Campaign!
ALCOSAN has submitted their plan to the EPA (& listened to us – the ratepayers!) and has asked for more time to explore green options, but our work is still far from done!
Throughout February over 70 volunteers met with leaders in 25 municipalities representing over half of the residents of the ALCOSAN service area. Then, on February 28th, more than 250 representatives and ratepayers from municipalities across the ALCOSAN service area attended a Clean Rivers Campaign Town Hall Meeting to urge County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and Pittsburgh Mayoral Candidates to work with municipalities to foster cooperation and prioritize green solutions that bring the most benefits to our neighborhoods and region. Find out more about that meeting on our blog!
