If you love good food – and who doesn’t? – then come dine during the week of September 23-30 at one of the many great Rockland restaurants participating in Water Week. It’s seven days of fine dining and community spirit to support the Rockland Water Coalition’s work to ensure safe, clean and affordable drinking water for our residents and businesses. Each participating restaurant will make a donation with many giving 10% of their profits from one day or evening to fight this good fight. More than 25 Rockland restaurants have enlisted in the cause — with 17 eateries right here in Nyack.

Water Week is a great opportunity to enjoy delicious meals while recognizing participating restaurants for their commitment to help their community!

The Rockland Water Coalition’s website, SustainableRockland.org, lists the participating Rockland restaurants and indicates which day or night each restaurant will make a donation.

Look for your favorite dining location or try a new one! Please be sure to tell them that you are there because of Water Week and thank them for their participation!

Rockland Water Coalition opposes United Water’s plans for selling Rockland ratepayers treated Hudson River water for drinking water because of the huge cost, when there are cheaper, safer options. SustRocklandRestWk201309Water rates will increase by $400-$500 for the average household if this plant is built, making our rates among the highest in the nation. Rockland residents are also very concerned about the plant’s impact on the Hudson River and drinking treated Hudson River water, which may contain trace amounts of radioactive compounds from the leaking Indian Point nuclear plant, located just three miles upstream.

Look for the ROCKLAND WATER COALITION decal in the windows of participating restaurants.
