Water Crisis in Newburgh
Organized by: Margaret Maher
Newburgh, NY has declared a State of Emergency due to a troubling level of contaminates in the water! High levels of the chemical PFOS, which is used in firefighter foams and other chemicals, have been found at alarming rates in two of the city's main sources of water, Silver Stream and Washington Lake. While the city have diverted the water sourcing to two other locations, they have not yet been able to determine the cause of these high levels of PFOS in Silver Stream and Washington Lake. Residents have been advised to drink bottled water while the City of Newburgh figures out a long term solution. Please help us with water donations andnifnyou are far away, we will use these donations to purchase gallons of water and transport it into the heart of Newburgh to ensure its residents and most importantly the children of Newburgh are drinking water that is safe for them!!! Thank you in advance for you me donation! Also, we need volunteers, please call or text 917-736-2992 if you are interested.
