We would like to make sure the public understands that United Water provides their service atRead Morereason able rates and currently use contractors that pay prevailing wages and benefits to their workers. At times, United Water work is responsible for over 40% of the man-hours earned by our members here in Rockland County. Man-hours that enable local families to have decent health insurance and a pension for retirement as well as a livable wage to support their families on. When deciding how to determine a fair price for their service, we feel this should be taken into consideration since many of the man and women who pay taxes and live in or around this area are supported through jobs created by United Water infrastructure repairs.

The desalination plant in Haverstraw is a done deal. Just ask howie philips and his crowd.

isn't the psc the ones that gave uw the summer rate increase of 50% i think. seems the psc has aRead Morelov e love relationship with uw, and why on earth would uw get to keep the 50% rate increase for no extra work or service performed.just cause psc says so. 4 months of 50% increase in the summer when much more water is used is more like a 20+% rate increase all year. they should pay it back the following year if there is no drought.or get rid of it altogether since no drought for so long.

Are we living in the twilight zone here? A slaughter house in a residential area? That alreadyRead Morerecei ved a grant from the state to pay for it even though it was never approved? How did this happen? Something is wrong here.

Pat, of course something is wrong here. That's why we're doing something about it. Speak to yourRead Moref riends and neighbors about this and come join us on June 1st. If our protest draws enough people, we can help Assemblyman Zebrowski get the grant rescinded.

On the bright side, if there is one, at least you were able to actually speak to a live person atRead MoreUn ited Water. I had a big problems with my Verizon FIOS yesterday and after an hour of being referred to different links and Community Forums, I am still unable to talk to anyone, despite my monthly bill of $175.00. I will have to visit their office today to see if I can get it fixed. At least these problems are temporary with United Water. I assume it has been fixed?

Precisely Tyler! However an even better solution would have been to wait until Wednesday toRead Moreperfo rm the scheduled maintanance and allowing people to enjoy their holiday without water glitches. Terribly thoughtless!
michele riak April 16, 2014 at 10:39 AM
Oh and Watchdog.....no one answered at United water. We found out about the maintenance via anRead Moreau tomated message when we called. One of our seder guests knows Ed Day and called him. He is the one who was kind enough to get in touch with the water company.
