Incorporated under the Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Act in 1946, ALCOSAN is governed by a seven-member board of directors -- three appointed by the mayor of Pittsburgh, three appointed by the Allegheny County Executive, and one joint city-county appointee -- with each serving a five-year term.
ALCOSAN conducts Board of Director’s Meetings once a month, typically the last Thursday of the month. Public participation and comment at ALCOSAN’s Board of Directors meetings is welcomed and encouraged. Participants who wish to speak during board meetings must register in the lobby of the Administration Building prior to the start of the meeting. All meetings begin at 4:30 p.m. and are held in the William C. Trefz Boardroom at ALCOSAN. For more information, please call 412-734-8363.
Both the Green Committee and Professional Services Committee are important to the operation of ALCOSAN. The Green Committee works closely with ALCOSAN’s Green Revitalization of our Waterways (GROW) program, while the Professional Services Committee determines which contracts will be presented to the full ALCOSAN board for approval.
