The public has never received a full explanation of what went wrong with our water system on January 9, 2014 and what needs to happen to prevent such a disaster from happening again. We deserve to know.
Join us on January 17th for a rally and public hearing into WV American Water's response to the 2014 water crisis. Click here for more details.
Our local officials can help make a public water system reality. Let them know it matters to you.
We, the undersigned, are residents of the nine-county region served by West Virginia American Water Company’s Elk River water treatment plant. West Virginia American Water is failing to provide affordable, safe and reliable water service to our region. We believe that creating a public water system is our best chance for ensuring that we have a water system where public health and safety take priority over profits.
We call upon the county commissions of each of the counties served by West Virginia American Water’s Elk River treatment plant (Kanawha, Boone, Putnam, Cabell, Lincoln, Logan, Clay, Jackson, and Roane) to join us in publicly supporting the creation of a locally owned, public utility that will acquire the existing water system and make the improvements we need and deserve.
