Our meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm.

January 2020 meeting

Instead of holding a neighborhood meeting at April’s home for January, we’ll be attending the Neighbors for Clean Air Regional Meeting. The Clean Air Council doesn’t have a location yet, but it will be Wednesday, January 29th. The focus is likely to be on coke plant regulations and the emissions violations that occurred at the Clairton US Steel plant during the last week of December 2019. There is usually a time for letter writing at the end of these meetings.

Day: Wednesday, January 29th
Time: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. dinner meeting
Location: TBD

December meeting agenda

Petrochemicals industry: Letters to tell Governor Wolfe to Change Position on Petrochemicals. Join us for a discussion of recent studies (including one last week from CMU) that indicate the human health costs, and even economic costs, of the petrochemical and fracking industry.

Drinking Water: We’ll discuss the report that came out by the Allegheny Front that found high levels of unregulated and potentially cancer causing chemicals in our water. I’ll share what the Pittsburgh water authority told me, what chemicals were found in the water and how and which filters can reduce these chemicals. Bromodichloromethane fact sheet from the CDC
