Water Week is a great opportunity to enjoy delicious meals out, while recognizing participating restaurants for their commitment to help their community!
During the week of Monday, Sept. 23, to Monday, Sept. 30, each of the participating restaurants will donate 10% of their profits from one day or evening to fight this good fight.
The Rockland Water Coalition's website, www.SustainableRockland.org, lists the participating Rockland restaurants and indicates which day or night each restaurant has chosen to offer its donation.
Look for your favorite restaurant or take this opportunity to 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. Water 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 3 miles upstream.
