A massive landfill has been proposed for the site shown above in Whitewater Township.  While the landfill could provide some added tax money, the costs could be quite high in terms of diminished property value, adverse health effects, well and stream pollution, odors and other impacts.  These adverse effects could extend as far as five miles and affect quality of life for most Whitewater Township residents and our eastern Dearborn County neighbors.  It is this threat which prompted us to form the Greater Whitewater Alliance

Unfortunately, the Whitewater Township Trustees lack any authority regarding the proposed landfill.  In other words, the landfill could be built even if Whitewater residents object.  Fortunately, the Trustees do have the option of gaining this authority provided you and a majority of the other 5500 Whitewater residents consent.  So, please take a moment to answer the few brief questions below.  You need not be a Whitewater resident to sign this petition and complete this survey.

Question Title

* 1. Please provide your contact info so we can let the Whitewater Trustees know that you live in their town or nearby.

Question Title

* 2. Do you live within the yellow, five-mile impact zone shown in the map above?

Question Title

* 3. A new landfill is not needed to accommodate waste disposal needs in our area.  Given this, are you opposed to the proposed, massive landfill expansion?

Question Title

* 4. Do you want the Whitewater Trustees to enact the zoning and other land use controls needed to ensure the landfill expansion does not harm you, your family and neighbors?  

Question Title

* 5. Is there anything else you'd like to share?
