ACTION: Call for a “Green Solution” to ALCOSAN’s Wet Weather Sewage Overflow Problem

ALCOSAN’s solution to the problem of sewage overflowing into our rivers during a storm was to build a huge multi-billion dollar storage chamber with large concrete tunnels beneath the rivers. Regardless of the carbon foot-print of such a venture, the cost of this project for ALCOSAN’s customers would be exorbitant.

The Sierra Club, Clean Water Action, and the Clean Rivers Campaign are urging their members to contact John Weinstein, Chair of the ALCOSAN Board, and demand that ALCOSAN adopt a ‘green solution’ to this fouling of our rivers.

SEND A LETTER to Chairman Weinstein by clicking HERE.

All the letters will be delivered in person to the ALCOSAN Board.
