Date & Time
Wednesday, March 22, 2017 - 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Are you looking to learn more about why and how we should protect and conserve water here in your community? In 2017, Nine Mile Run Watershed Association will host a series of free open houses to discuss and showcase water related topics over good brews. For each Water Talk, beer or coffee will be provided from local partners to highlight that for a good drink, clean water is the main ingredient. At every Water Talk, our staff will host interactive discussions regarding the actions you can take to contribute to a healthy watershed community. The Water Talks will be held at the NMRWA office in Wilkinsburg.
Talk #1: Beer and Barrels
The series will be held once per quarter and will kick off on World Water Day, March 22. Our StormWorks team will be hosting the first Water Talk, “Beers and Barrels”; an open house for homeowners and watershed members as a fun way to kick off Spring! We will provide free beer in addition to full access to our warehouse to see what rain barrels we provide. Come learn about problems related to stormwater runoff, actions you can take to begin conserving water on your properties, and additional stormwater tips and tricks – all while having a cold beer in your hand!
Water Talks partners
The partners for Water Talks are committed to conserving and protecting our water resources. Our coffee partner is La Prima, a local roaster with its well-known cafe in the Strip District. La Prima will be represented by Abby Devlin, a previous intern with NMRWA and an on-going committed volunteer who has hosted several stream clean-ups. Our brewery partner is Green Flash Brewing Company and will be represented by Nate Levi, the regional representative who is also a NMR watershed resident and supported last year’s Bike Tour and Block Party.
