ROCKLAND RATEPAYERS HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW!

Suez/United Water NY's top executive and two high level accountants are under investigation by the company for misstatement of revenue, according to filings by the company to the PSC.

Rockland ratepayers have a right to information about the circumstances under which Michael Pointing left. This "change in personnel" raises red flags about all of the information submitted by UW in its embattled desal proposal.

A fundraiser for the future of Rockland's water that benefits the Rockland Water Coalition. Let's all HAVE A GREAT TIME and raise lots of money!

We need to continue paying water experts and other specialists if we are going to permanently kill desal, which is not "dead in the water" yet.

Program for the event:
6:30 - Meet, Greet & Eat. You won't miss dinner - we will provide!
7:30 - "The Really Big Show" as Ed Sullivan used to say!

Come out for a great time AND a great cause!

We are sure you will enjoy the evening, and you will be contributing to a very important cause - Rockland County's path to safe, sustainable water resources for our future - without desal!

What's wrong with desalination?

  • • Desal "water tax" on top of 18% increases in county taxes.
  • • Water drawn 3.5 miles downstream from Indian Point nuclear plant
  • • Impacts on irreplaceable river habitat
  • • Increased flooding
  • • Greater vulnerability to future storms
  • • More flooding
  • • High energy use & carbon footprint
  • • NOT NECESSARY! We have safer, cheaper water sources!
