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.

It is unethical to expose school children to such a dense amount of toxins. The pollution from the factory would impact their clarity of thought, school attendance, and overall quality of life. We would also most definitely see a significant increase in asthma among the children. We as a community, cannot allow this to happen.

Rockwool threatens our school children, our farmers, our source water. They should be forced out by ligation, elections and county by ordinances.
