Regional water task force formed

Pitt’s Institute of Politics, which specializes in assisting coordinated responses to regional policy issues, has formed a regional water management task force to address southwestern Pennsylvania’s pressing water-management challenges.

Carnegie Mellon University President Jared Cohon, who chaired the Pennsylvania Economy League’s water and sewer infrastructure project, will chair the task force.

The new task force will work to identify and implement the most effective mechanisms to solve the area’s water-quality problems.

The Economy League’s report states that pursuing viable regional solutions to the water-infrastructure problems will help ensure that all residents in the 11-county region have the benefit of clean and healthy water through the implementation of efficient and effective water-management systems.

The 17-member task force includes representation from industry, government and academia from all 11 counties.
