ALCOSAN: Addressing the Environmental Health of Our Region
Water. It’s our most precious natural resource. At ALCOSAN we believe our mission and our purpose is clear. That’s why we’re working hard everyday to provide you, our customer, with cost-effective, environmentally conscious wastewater treatment that protects the public’s health while enhancing usage of our natural resources.
An independent review panel convened by the Allegheny Conference on Community Development at the request of ALCOSAN has concluded that a more regional approach to stormwater and wastewater management would provide better service and water quality for residents, businesses and communities. A complete report of the panel's findings and recommendations is available for download here.
