Know our water system is broken? Want to do something about it?
On September 22, local officials from Florida and Montana visited Charleston to share their success stories of replacing failing private water systems with locally owned, public water systems. They did it -- we can too!
Check out this video and sign our petition below to tell our local officials that we deserve better than WV American Water!
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.
