Join Clean Air's River Road Watchdog Team!
Are you interested in advocating for high standards for the clean up and remediation of blighted sites along River Road in the Tonawandas, including for the former sites of Tonawanda Coke and Huntley Power, and in monitoring current industries for potential dangers to workers and residents? Then join our River Road Watchdog Team!
This team focuses on oversight and watchdog activities related to the brownfield and superfund clean up processes ongoing at multiple sites along River Road, most notably at the former Tonawanda Coke and Huntley Power sites, and keeps tabs on current industries in the corridor. This team participates in the Tonawanda Coke Working Group and tracks progression of clean up processes at sites that do not have community advisory groups while advocating for additional CAGs. It also works to fight for stronger standards and greater community accountability in the statewide brownfield and superfund processes.
If you are a Tonawanda resident, River Road worker, and/or are interested in the technical and legal side of environmental remediation, permitting, or workplace safety, then this team will be a good fit for you.
