Rocklanders are invited to United Water's open house at its Haverstraw Water Supply Project's pilot facility on Saturday in West Haverstraw.
Tours will be conducted throughout the day.
The Haverstraw Water Supply Project is a major infrastructure initiative that United Water says is critical to the future of Rockland County. United Water says Rockland needs this project because its water demands are expected to outpace the current supply in the near future. The West Haverstraw plant would process water from the Hudson River so that it can be used for drinking water.
United Water says laboratory results show water from the Hudson, after being purified at the pilot facility, is as good as or better than the quality of water that is being delivered to Rocklanders' taps today.
DATE: Saturday, Feb. 25
TIME: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
PLACE: 4 Carol Avenue
West Haverstraw, N.Y.
