SERVE Philadelphia Water Outreach Ambassador
The Philadelphia Water Department’s (PWD) Public Affairs Division is looking for a Philadelphia Water Outreach Ambassador to generate public support for PWD’s environmental investments by empowering residents to become Green City, Clean Water ambassadors. Green City, Clean Waters is Philadelphia's plan to reduce stormwater pollution currently entering our Combined Sewer System through the use of green infrastructure. To date, Clean Waters is setting the national standard for environmentally-friendly stormwater management. The approach is to generate green sites throughout the city, such as vacant lots, parks, and schools, in an effort to combat water pollution in city waterways. The Water Outreach Ambassador will join the Public Engagement Team to work to generate public support for PWD’s environmental investments and existing traditional infrastructure (i.e. maintaining underground pipes). The Public Engagement Team’s approach is to inform, involve and inspire community members and other stakeholders through residential, community and watershed-wide opportunities.
