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.

My son attends this school and our youngest will be starting Prek when this facility is scheduled to be up and running. The American Lung Association, the World Health Organization and the American Academy of Pediatrics has information on what this type of pollution will do to young growing children. It is shameful and absolutely disgusting to put young children at risk.

I've been hearing from my West Virginia friends about this project and the effects it will have on the community and the Chesapeake Bay. As someone who loves to visit the bay and Ocean City and who actually just loves a planet I am completely against this project.
