Water is our most precious natural resource.
The Allegheny County Sanitary Authority (ALCOSAN) works to provide our community with cost-effective, environmentally conscious wastewater treatment that protects the public’s health while enhancing wise usage of our natural resources.
ALCOSAN’s 59-acre treatment plant is one of the largest wastewater treatment facilities in the Ohio River Valley, processing up to 250 million gallons of wastewater daily, and providing treatment services to 83 communities including the City of Pittsburgh.
Join us as we learn about this environmentally and technologically focused organization and the implications that an aging infrastructure, storm water management, and watershed health have for issues surrounding our community’s economic development, community planning, and public health.
Continental breakfast will be served. Tour will take place both indoors and outdoors, so please dress accordingly. Guest parking will be available at ALCOSAN. Because we need to make arrangements for parking and security, registration for this program will close by noon on August 19th.
