Sierra Club members staffed several Earth Day booths, including one at Cincinnati State on April 19,  and one at Blue Ash Summit Park on April 21.   The members played recycling games with children and adults, handed out literature and explained our monthly programs, outings, and other activities. They also informed the public about the hazardous Duke Energy gas pipeline.
The following members volunteered to make this a productive earth day event:  Karen Nagel, Elizabeth Durrell, Evan Denenberg, Julia Gilman,Carol Cohn, Debbie Clark, Denise Olden, and Alvin Denenberg. Ann Chisko, from NOPE, (neighbors opposed to pipeline expansion), was also present to help with the Duke Energy gas pipeline information.

Sewer Bills

Greater Cincinnati Water Works will begin monthly billing in January. This includes the sewer district charges.  January bills will be a bit complicated because you’ll actually be paying for all/part of last quarter. See the Enquirer article for details (here) and on GCWW’s web page (here). Sierra Club has been seeking changes to the sewer rate structure to make the rates more equitable. Monthly billing will help you know more quickly if your usage is higher than normal (slow water leaks can add up to big sewer bills!)

Sierra Club addresses failure to enforce environmental law

Sierra Club sends Notice of Intent to File a Citizen Suit under the federal Clean Air Act against greater Cincinnati corporation.  We documented over 600 violations that gone unaddressed by Ohio EPA.
