2017 Waters Off

Huge thanks to our Local 6 Journeyman, Apprentices and participating contractors that donated their Saturday to join us in the Annual Waters Off on Saturday March 25th. We had one of the best turnouts ever that included 23 Local 6 members, Three Rivers Community Action, Goodin and some City and State Representatives.

This joint effort allowed us to help 23 less fortunate individuals and families with their plumbing related issues that led to higher utility costs and potential health hazards related to mold.
