Get the facts about Rockland County’s drinking water supply, and United Water New York’s proposed desalination of Hudson River water in a public forum sponsored by the Rockland Water Coalition and Rockland Sierra Club.

Can Rockland residents and 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), the project’s impacts on irreplaceable habitat, flooding and climate impacts.

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