What You Can Do

CRITICAL HEARINGS ON ROCKLAND DESALINATION PROPOSAL:  

Tuesday and Wednesday, OCTOBER 1 & 2

With your help, we have won a victory in the fight against United Water’s desalination unsafe and unnecessary proposal for Rockland’s drinking water! 

The NYS Public Service Commission has granted two public hearings in October.  Now we need to pack the room both evening.  We’ve done it before and with your help we can do it again! 

FOUR THINGS YOU CAN DO NOW TO STOP THIS UNSAFE, UNAFFORDABLE,& UNNECESSARY PROPOSAL!

1. Come out to the hearings on October 1 & 2!
Tuesday, October 1, 6 p.m
Clarkstown High School South, Auditorium
31 Demarest Mill Road
West Nyack, New York

Wednesday, October 2, 6 p.m
Haverstraw Elementary School, Auditorium
16 Grant Street
Haverstraw, New York

For quick, easy talking points for the hearings, check back here.  Or just come out & show your support for our efforts by your presence.

 

2. Volunteer a few hours of your time: Sunday, September 15, 22, or 29

On three Sundays, we are doing a supermarket leafleting campaign all around Rockland.  This is our best way to get people out to the hearings.  Many of your neighbors still do not know about this proposal, which will send their water bills through the roof!

Let us know that you can give two hours of your time on Sunday, Sept. 15, 22, or 29:  rocklandwater@gmail.com or call 845-429-2020
