The Rockland Water Coalition will call on elected officials to stand with 24,000 Rockland residents who have said no to United Water New York’s proposed Haverstraw Water Supply Project, a desalination plant that would pump millions of gallons a day of Hudson River water from Haverstraw Bay, treat it, and then sell the drinking water to Rockland County residents.
More than 24,000 Rockland residents have signed petitions opposing United Water’s plans to construct a $189 milllion desalination plant for Rockland’s drinking water. Join the Rockland Water Coalition as members present these petitions to elected officials who stand with them to call on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to oppose the desalination plan.
The Rockland Water Coalition consists of 23 local and regional environmental and civic organizations, including Riverkeeper, Clearwater, Scenic Hudson and Rockland AARP, New York State Sierra Club.
The Rockland Water Coalition is urging Rockland residents to call or write Governor Cuomo’s office to register your opinion on United Water’s proposed desalination plant for Rockland County. Call Governor Cuomo’s office at (518) 474-8390 and you have the option of either leaving a recorded or message or speaking with a representative. You can also email your comments to: email@example.com.
