Oct 20: EPA rep comes to Clairton

In response to an urgent citizen request, Brian Rehn, Associate Director of the Environmental Protection Agency's Air Program, will be speaking -- and hearing residents' concerns -- at the REACH Mon Valley monthly meeting. The Liberty-Clairton area is home to the nation's largest coke works and faces some of the country's toughest air pollution problems. REACH Mon Valley is a project of Clean Water Action, and provides a monthly forum to discuss pollution issues in the Mon Valley.

REACH stands for REaching A Clean & Healthy Mon Valley, a.k.a. the Mon Valley Bucket Brigade; it formed around bucket sampling for air toxics a few years ago.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Elrama Fire Hall (17 Elrama Avenue, Elrama, PA 15038). For more information, call (412)765-3053x210 or visit http://www.pabucketbrigade.org .
