Philadelphia is already experiencing very real and harmful impacts from climate change. Heavier storms flood our streets, damage our neighborhoods and carry toxins and chemicals into our local streams and rivers - negatively impacting our water quality. Unfortunately, there has been a lack of leadership from city officials to support more flood reducing, pollution preventing green space known as green stormwater infrastructure. That’s why we’re asking Philadelphia’s incoming city council to lead on climate change and advance policies to support more green stormwater infrastructure.
Make a difference by signing a petition to city council and Mayor Kenney’s office and urge them to do the following:
City Council, we’re asking you to make the right choice for Philly: prioritize green stormwater infrastructure because it makes our neighborhoods healthier, happier and safer to live, work and play.
