Ashtabula County Water Watch wants to thank you for your support and encourage you to join us this winter!

EPA air permit (2nd) granted to Petmin pig iron plant appeal: ACWW is working with the lawyers of Fair Shake Initially, Petmin said they would build the facility which would decrease CO2 emissions by half (per their permit application). In March, they asked for a new permit with increased emissions as they are not able to build the CO2 recapture facility at this time. They promise they will try do it at a later date. ACWW would like Petmin to be held accountable for their toxic emissions.

The CELDF Democracy School: Igniting a Rights Movement for Communities and Nature: This January, 2021 – register today (click on link)

Democracy School is a stimulating and illuminating virtual course that teaches residents and activists an empowering new approach about how to reframe exhausting and often discouraging single-issue work – such as opposing fracking, overdevelopment, and pesticides, or advocating for worker rights, housing access, and protecting water – in a way that we can confront corporate control and government interference on a powerful front.

Classes will be held, virtually, on four Saturdays in January 2021.
