Join us for a conversation about the water we drink as we continue our theme of a healthy environment for the new year. We’ll dive into the subject of the Catawba River, this region’s main source of water. There is a new Sheriff overseeing the Catawba, actually he’s called a Riverkeeper but he may as well be the Sheriff- his job is to keep the Catawba as clean as possible.

Monday January 5 | Cleaning the Air

January 5, 2009 at 8:41 am | Posted in Coming Up | 4 Comments

The EPA standards for air quality will be tighter in 2009, including regulatory penalties if our region doesn’t clean up our air. As Charlotte growth continues, we’ll need to make significant behavioral changes to help the environment. We’ll talk about some of the things we can do to help the air we breathe be cleaner, and we’ll get an update on the progress of a new local group, Clean Air Works, and how they’re trying to help corporations work to clean the air.
Dave Franchina – Chairman, Regional Air Quality Board
John Eapen – VP, Environmental Health and Safety, Ruddick Corporation
Susan Patterson – Program Director, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation
