Protect our Rivers and Streams

Did you know that anything that goes into a catch basin or storm inlet on the street eventually ends up in a stream or river?  You can help protect our water resources by reporting any activity that could cause pollution of our waterways.  If you see someone dumping anything into a storm inlet or even just dumping something on the street such as oil or auto fluids, litter, paint, grass clippings, hazardous waste or cleaning fluids, you can report this to the borough office at 412-271-7101. Please get as much information as possible including a photo, the location and time and other pertinent information.  Together we can all protect water, our most valuable resource.
