UFCW 1994 Joins Coalition to Protect MontCo Water Supply(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)

UFCW Local 1994 MCGEO has joined a growing number of environmental, labor, and other organizations to urge Montgomery County Council members to protect Ten Mile Creek (right), part of the backup water supply for more than three million people in the metropolitan Washington area. Developers are proposing to build along the creek, threatening its viability as a drinking water source. "After what happened to the Elk River in West Virginia and the 300,000 people who rely on it for clean drinking water, it's clear how fragile clean and safe water supplies are in this country,” said Gino Renne, president of Local 1994. “Saving the Ten Mile Creek from any damage is a vital community priority,". The County Council will hold a meeting to discuss the issue today at 9:30a, on the 3rd floor of the Council Office Building in Rockville. Members of the Save Ten Mile Creek coalition will be there and are encouraging concerned citizens to attend.
