Pittsburgh has positioned itself as a city with a strong commitment to sustainable development, pledging to implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals including equitable access to clean water and sanitation. However, the City of Pittsburgh has also been identified as being the worst locale in the country for Black women, and inequities in race, class, and gender persist. Further, the region is challenged by a rapidly changing climate, aged and failing infrastructure, impaired water quality. The juxtaposition of water and social challenges amplifies both sets of concerns. This project unites faculty members from diverse disciplines including sociology, public health, public policy, and geoscience, as a new team to comprehensively evaluate water challenges and inequities in the Pittsburgh region, centering interactions between the social and geophysical dimensions.
