Apr 9: Beyond Tunnel Vision

Join the Clean Rivers Campaign to welcome Matt Millea to Pittsburgh for the 5th installment of the Good Jobs & Green Communities Speaker Series!  Mr. Millea is the Deputy County Executive for Physical Services in Onondaga County, NY. He is in charge of Onondaga County’s “Save the Rain” program. This is a multi-million dollar public works initiative that uses both gray and green solutions to lessen sewer overflows into Onondaga Lake. RSVP today!

Mr. Millea was Executive Vice President and Acting President of the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC). During his time there, he launched the award winning Green Innovations Grant Program, which promotes the adoption of innovative water treatment and conservation technologies. We are excited to hear from Matt and hope you’ll join us to find out how we can adapt some of his innovations to solve our problems here!

The Clean Rivers Campaign is working to solve our sewer problem using green solutions that will not only clean our water, but will create family-sustaining jobs, rebuild our neighborhoods, clean our air, and result in the most benefit for our community! 

6 p.m. at the Eddy Theater on the Chatham University campus (reception 6 p.m, talk at 6:30).  Cosponsored by Chatham University’s School of Sustainability and the Environment.
