This morning, November 19th, members of the Clean Rivers Campaign, Riverlife, Bike Pittsburgh, PCRG, the Parks Conservancy, Pittsburgh United, and other community, labor, and faith allies stood together for a press conference exposing for the first time ALCOSAN’s new tunnel and drop shaft plan.
Joined by Kevin Acklin, Chief of Staff to Mayor Peduto, we covered Allegheny Landing with 8,000 square feet of black tarp to demonstrate the devastating impact ALCOSAN’s plan will have on our riverfronts. Community, political, and philanthropic groups stand united in the fight to ensure that this project invests in our communities rather than destroys years of revitalization and economic development along our rivers.
Join us on Tuesday, November 24th for a City Council hearing on ALCOSAN’s 2016 budget. Let’s stand together to hold ALCOSAN accountable to the demands of ratepayers in Pittsburgh!
City Council ALCOSAN Budget Hearing
November 24th, at 10am
