Pittsburgh Water Collaboratory & Three Rivers Waterkeeper Release Analysis of Water Quality in Pittsburgh’s Tributaries

In 2021 the Pittsburgh Water Collaboratory and 3 Rivers Waterkeeper received funding from the University of Pittsburgh’s Year of Engagement Program to collect 100 samples from the tributaries that feed the Ohio, Monongahela, and Allegheny Rivers. Together they sampled 25 locations over four quarters from August 2021 to May 2022.

The results show elevated levels of nutrients and metals throughout our river systems. They also highlight how industry is still playing a significant role in the health of our rivers. Read more today at https://bit.ly/3RiversWaterQuality.
