Stand with Elizabeth, NJ & Union County residents demanding that our elected officials ensure the safety and integrity of our aged lead-based water system. Stand with us for clean, safe, water!!!
The water crisis in Flint, Chicago, and Washington, DC show us just how vulnerable our water systems can be and how widespread this issue is. Now local communities that receive water from the Newark water system have questions. Is our water safe?
Our local officials want us to believe the water company, a for-profit organization that is incentivized to prioritize profit. With public health and safety at stake, we cannot.
Independent information from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection shows that we have reason to be concerned. A simple failure by the water company could spell disaster for our families. This could be happening now; but, if Flint, Washington, Chicago, and Newark tell us anything it is that it will happen - it is just a question of when.
Is deferring the cost today worth failing to insure our families safety in the future?
We say no!
