Prison Ecology Project

The mission of the Prison Ecology Project is to map the intersections of mass incarceration and environmental degradation, and create action plans to address the multitude of problems found there.

The PE project addresses issues such as: damage of sewage and industrial waste from overpopulated and under-regulated prisons into to water ways; threats to listed species by the ongoing construction and operation of prisons in remote, environmentally-sensitive rural areas; and environmental justice concerns regarding prisoners, staff and surrounding communities.

    Can you give me some insight on the quality of Graterford State Correctional facility? I read an article approximately 1 year ago that the water has high levels of chemicals. These chemicals are known cancer starters.

    Please advise
    Thank you
