Preserving Whitewater Quality of Life from Landfill Impacts
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 Ditch The Dump.
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.
