In our focus on Philadelphia we help municipalities in the Schuylkill River Watershed to strengthen their water protection regulations, are continuing to work with local residents in Ambler to see that a permanent solution is implemented, cleaning up a dangerous asbestos pile, focusing on sustainability and recycling, and are working to help residents monitor and test their air quaility.
Combating air pollution in Allegheny County, organizing with residents in the municipalities across the Ohio River to reduce the pollution coming from Neville Island and ensure that industry is being a "good neighbor," working with residents of the Mon Valley who came to Clean Water Fund with concerns about air pollution's impact on their health are just a part of our work in Pittsburgh.
Focusing on issues important to the Allentown and Eastern Pennsylvania region including stopping TCE contamination of air, water, and soil in Montgomery County, protecting streams in the greater Lehigh Valley area, protecting the Upper Perkiomen, and promoting effective stormwater management.
Pennsylvanians get their drinking water from our state's more than 83,000 miles of waterways, acres of lakes, reservoirs and wetlands, and a natural system of underground aquifers. Unfortunately, many of these vital water sources have been contaminated or are at risk of contamination. Despite their importance, drinking water sources receive no special protection from pollution and polluting activities in Pennsylvania! Without action, our drinking water sources are in danger.
