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.

    As a former resident of Jefferson County who one day hoped to retire there, I am disappointed that such an environmentally dangerous factory is being constructed in such a beautiful area.

    Sulfa will be spewed, won't smell they say. I'm terrifically allergic even when it doesn't smell. Will cause major respiratory issues.

    Corporations should be held accountable for their mess they created. We in PA feel for you because hundreds of steams are still polluted by strip mines.
