Alert: Costs for WJWW’s $100 MM Industrial Plant on Purchase St. within protected Watershed

Please sign the Petition, attend a WJWW Board Meeting and read FAQ on PEPA’s website about environmental risks and construction costs (excerpt below):

Q: How Much of an Increase will WJWW Customers see on a Monthly Bill?
"Moving Harrison Forward" team estimated the amount of WJWW's water bill is expected to increase 15% annually for the next five years, resulting in a bill that is 82% higher than it is today. Read details and calculations here.

How Can You Help? 
  1. Sign the Online Petition to prevent the plant’s construction in the area selected by advising the Westchester County Board of Legislators to "Just Say No" to locating the WJWW Water Filtration Plant on Purchase Street within the Kenisco Watershed.  
  2. Attend a WJWW Board Meeting.
  3. Keep this Email and Petition moving along to other concerned citizens. Because the Kensico supplies drinking water to millions of people in New York City and Westchester, signatories do not need to live in Purchase to add their name!
Final thoughts: Given the importance of the Kensico Watershed, it makes no sense to construct a large industrial filtration plant in the area selected by WJWW. This is especially true when a nearby alternative location that has already been studied exists outside of the sensitive Watershed and residential neighborhood.
