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.

    Using $47 million in tax dollars to pollute our county in exchange for 140 jobs is not a good deal. Using this factory to open the door to 1000 acres additional industry is worse. WV needs to milk the eastern panhandle cash cow, not kill it!

    I only passed through the area briefly, but between talking to a few passionate citizens and reading about how this project has tried its under-the-radar method of getting built, I'm convinced there's a lot of backroom BS going on, which usually means it's unsafe.

    The higher the stacks, the wider the spread of pollution.

    Even more toxic emissions to breathe on top of the ones we already breathe on the daily? No thanks!
