Navigating Water Run-off in Pittsburgh

An eye opening meeting last night at the Jewish Community Center. Facilitated by our Councilman, Doug Shields, Squirrel Hill area residents aired their grievances to Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority, Nine Mile Run Association, ALCOSAN, and City of Pittsburgh Public Works.

Residents testified to cleaning up human poop from combined sewage run-off in their yards and in their homes.
