As one of the oldest cities in the US, we have one of the oldest water infrastructures in the country. Our water infrastructure has too many contaminants; such as lead, chromium 6, PFAS, and disinfection byproducts, making us a city that can not provide our citizens with safe drinking water.
We also must move to making solar and wind as our primary sources of energy instead of fossil fuels. Fossil fuels should be our last option, because solar and wind energy is safer for residents and the environment. This will allow us to have clean, reliable energy while lowering gas and electric bills.
We need to address these problems immediately with focused and impactful legislation and funding.
1. Ensure all food businesses and Philadelphia schools have water filtration, even for washing dishes.
2. Strictly holding PWD accountable in making sure they are exceeding federal guidelines and properly funding the Green City Clean Waters program.
3. Give tax incentives for businesses and residents to add solar panels and power walls.
