Date & Time
Saturday, May 20, 2017 - 10:00 am - 11:30 am
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 #2: Coffee and Water Quality
The series will be held once per quarter. This second installment, “Coffee and Water Quality”, will explore learning about stream health through hands-on testing to compare and contrast Nine Mile Run against various regional streams. The tests will include some of the parameters within our Stream Monitoring Report Card. Fresh coffee, provided by La Prima, will be prepared so you can taste test the difference that water types and sources have on a cup of joe.
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.
