Photo of the City of Pittsburgh at night.Hosted by CONSOL Energy (the nation’s largest producer of high-Btu Bituminous coal), the Three Rivers Boat Cruise was an opportunity to see Pittsburgh from a unique vantage point while learning about the region’s rich past, mingling with representatives from the energy and mining industries, watershed organizations, municipal and state and federal agencies all while enjoying the flavor of Pittsburgh with an excellent Captain’s Buffet (menu) in the company of local entertainers under a sparkling skyline. The PA Abandoned Mine Reclamation Conference Committee highlighted the evening with the awarding of its Mayfly Award to an individual for their lifetime commitment to reclamation in PA.

For over 250 years, Pittsburgh and its rivers have been the gateway through which coal, oil, steel, and other commodities have made their way to the rest of the country. Even today, the region’s extensive network of waterways continues to be the lifeblood for commercial transportation--providing “Fuel for a Nation”. This Cruise will include locking through the Braddock Lock and Dam with an explanation by the USACOE and the Port of Pittsburgh Commission. Join us and see why Pittsburgh is called, “The City of Bridges”!
