UNITED WATER’S PROPOSED DESALINATION OF HUDSON RIVER WATER
Tuesday, January 29 at 7 p.m.
Nanuet Public Library, 149 Church St., Nanuet, NY 10954

Can Rockland residents & business afford huge increases in water on top of 18% increases in county taxes and looming county debt?
Will Rockland residents pay for desalinated water, while United Water sends more of our fresh water downstream to New Jersey customers?
Bring your questions: concerns about drinking Hudson River water (with Indian Point only 3.5 miles upstream), impacts on irreplaceable habitat, flooding, climate impacts.

Learn what you can do NOW to stop this unaffordable, unsafe, unnecessary proposal!

  1. I think there are a number of people in our community who think the fix is in and the construction of the water desalination plant is going to take place; that the approval process has concluded and that approval has been granted. This means that the movement against this horrible idea is not being vocal enough. Get involved! Obtain a lawn placard at the least! Write your local representatives! Update this website with more commentary!

    PS I wonder if any other local communities in the USAare fighting something like this…I wish I had more time from work to get involved more!

  2. We can’t make your meeting, but support your efforts. Say No to Desalinization!
