Before the plan to fix our sewers gets submitted to the EPA, changes
need to be made. Right now, our local sewer authority is planning to
build giant tunnels under our rivers that will cost us more than $2
billion and not even fix the problem of raw sewage going into our
rivers. This is not acceptable.
Green solutions need to be a part of the plan! Infrastructure like green roofs, permeable pavement, rain gardens and street trees will capture stormwater where it falls. These solutions help us improve air quality, revitalize business districts, create permanent jobs and increase home values.
