Water is life. The People’s Water Board advocates for access, protection, and conservation of water. We believe water is a human right and all people should have access to clean and affordable water. Water is a commons that should be held in the public trust free of privatization. The People’s Water Board promotes awareness of the interconnectedness of all people and resources.
DWSD recently proposed cutting and/or privatizing 80 percent of its staff. The People's Water Board Coalition wants to make sure water is affordable, protected from pollution, and stays in the public hands, rather than private companies. We are very concerned about DWSD's proposal and hope that you will show your concern by attending this demonstration. To see the powerpoint presentation of DWSD's proposal, go to http://j.mp/OFBJX8
Demonstration is from 1 to 2pm
DWSD meeting begins promptly at 2pm (consider attending the meeting to give public comment or sit in the audience to show support for public water)
