Clean Rivers Campaign

Our sewer issues have been much in the news recently:

Alcosan gets more time to create green solutions to overflow problem

EPA tells Pittsburgh, Allegheny County to follow plan to reduce sewer overflows

Repairs sought to stop groundwater that costs Alcosan every month

The Clean Rivers Campaign recently presented Tim Duggan and Jason Parson as part of the Beyond Tunnel Vision: Good jobs and Green Communities lecture series. They discussed how their teams helped turn around Kansas City’s plan for compliance with their consent decree, creating good green jobs and transforming neighborhoods in the process.

Tim presented some exciting concept plans for a couple of specific sites in Pittsburgh where large volumes of stormwater could be removed from the sewer system using green solutions that would also bring substantial additional benefits to the neighborhoods where they were built.  More than 150 people attended, and the question and answer session was long and lively!
