On Saturday, December 10, twenty-seven activists from Clean Water Action, the Sierra Club, PIIN, Action United, Nine Mile Run Watershed Association and Pittsburgh UNITED came together at a Clean Rivers Campaign workshop. This campaign is working to shape the huge investment in ending the problem of sewage in our rivers in a way that will promote green infrastructure and job creation.
The workshop participants celebrated the successes from 2011 including turning out 150 people to one of ALCOSAN’s community meetings. They practiced how to talk to their neighbors and friends about the campaign. They also kicked off a campaign to collect letters to County Executive-Elect Rich Fitzgerald urging him to show leadership for green infrastructure and jobs in the ALCOSAN plan to clean up our rivers.
