Tom Hoffman is the Western Pennsylvania Director for Clean Water Action, a national organization dedicated to fighting for clean air and water at the national, state and local level. CWA has 1 million members nationwide and 150,000 in Pennsylvania.
Currently CWA has several key priorities:
• Requiring publicly funded development to be part of the solution to the twin problems of stormwater runoff which is fouling our rivers and reducing diesel emissions which cause asthma and other respiratory diseases.
• Stronger protections for the sources of our drinking water in Pennsylvania
• Protecting our drinking water and water resources from the contamination by wastewater from drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus shale.
Before Clean Water Action, Tom worked with the One Hill Coalition and Pittsburgh UNITED to win the first ever community benefits agreement between the Hill District Community and the Penguins for the new hockey arena.
