Rockwool is Wrong for Jefferson County


WHEREAS Rockwool will be one of the largest toxic polluters in West Virginia

INCLUDING cancer-causing chemicals, heavy metals, hazardous particulate matter, and ozone precursors;

WHEREAS Rockwool is located within 10,000 feet of four schools, with 30% of Jefferson County's student population;

WE THE PEOPLE strongly urge the Jefferson County Commission and Board of Education to each pass a resolution disapproving of Rockwool's location in the heart of Jefferson County.

    EVERYONE who voted for allowing this plant to be built needs to be removed from office. This impact on our land and our children is immeasurable. This cannot be allowed to happen. Shame on them.

    The County Planners need to consider the long term consequences on the community and environment and not the short term gains from making these deals.

    This will absolutely reduce retirees planning to move to and build in Jefferson County. Obviously not well researched or thought through by County Planners. Whoever is running for Governor next (Joe Manchin?) needs to step up on this now.

    Jefferson County is no place for this polluting disaster. It needs to be built in the corporation’s home country.

    THIS IS NOT OK! I have family near the area. I can only imagine how upset I would be to find out that this plant was being placed dangerously close to my baby cousin’s elementary school. Children should NOT BE EXPOSED TO THIS! Who in their right mind would do this!? Who in their right mind would think that this is ok!?
