Stop WJWW from Destructive Building in the Protected Watershed on Airport Property

Westchester Joint Water Works is moving ahead to remove over 6 acres of forest and build a massive plant when they do not own the land they propose to build on. The land is currently a green space at the Westchester County Airport and subject to a “land swap” or land sale that would need to be approved by the Westchester County Board of Legislators in the future.

Please read the FAQ’s on PEPA’s website which provide more information about this issue or read a one page flyer here.

How Can you help?

  1. Click here to Sign the Online Petition to ask the Board of Legislators to say “No” to the WJWW Land Swap to build in the watershed
  2. Call and/or write to your local Westchester County legislators
