The Pittman Wash Dispute

pittman.jpg

The Pittman Wash in Henderson is home to various wildlife species as well as hiking trails that are maintained by a non-profit volunteer group called Project Green who fought to make the area a clean and vibrant public asset. But, the City of Henderson is planning to put a concrete channel in the wash to prevent flood waters from damaging nearby homes and causing costly future damage. Project Green says the city went ahead with the plan without public input and they say the channel would displace numerous animals and wetlands in the wash. We talk with members of Project Green and the City of Henderson about the dispute between Pittman Wash supporters and Henderson officials.
