SALISBURY OFF OUR BACKS: Resist Paying for Fibrant through Our Exorbitant Water Bills! Resist Paying for Contaminated Tap Water!

Posted on July 26, 2017

Salisbury Off Our Backs

♦ We are the organizing committee of SALSIBURY OFF OUR BACKS.  We live in Rowan County municipalities and unfortunately our municipalities buy water from Salisbury-Rowan Utilities.  Our water bills have become oppressive due to Salisbury’s siphoning funds from Salisbury-Rowan Utilities to keep their fiasco Fibrant on life supports.  The Salisbury-Rowan Utilities have failed in the proper maintenance of  their water system and many of their asbestos-concrete water mains have fallen into decay.  Unsafe conditions exist.

Today we learned our water may contain cancer causing contaminants such bromodichloromethane, chloroform, hexavalent chromium, dibromochloremethane, dichhloroacetic acid, trihalomethanes, and trichholoroacetic acid.  For more information about these contaminants in the Salisbury water supply visit the Environmental Working Group at EWG.Org

In early September we are planning our first organizing meeting to discuss various ways county residents can resist Salisbury and use economic force to bring it to its knees.  We will make the announcement in the Rowan Free Press.
