Rail Pollution Protection Pittsburgh Presentation

The MWSS and the Allegheny City Central Association will jointly host members of Rail Pollution Protection Pittsburgh (RP3) for a presentation on the Norfolk Southern Pittsburgh Vertical Clearance Project (PVCP). Please join us on Monday, April 22, 7pm-9pm, at Alphabet City, 40 W. North Ave., to learn more about how this project will affect us all.

The presentation is titled "Norfolk Southern - Dirty, Dangerous, and In Your Backyard" and will provide comprehensive information about the PVCP including the health impact of black carbon diesel pollution on those living within the high risk zone, and the dangers of running double-stacked trains alongside oil cars through densely populated city neighborhoods.

RP3 will also cover the railroad’s involvement in the expansion of the petrochemical industry, and how to
use cameras/monitors to gather baseline information. Here is a flyer with more information--please send to your family and friends who may be affected!
