Thank you for taking action to protect PA’s water from hostile corporate takeovers. Your email will help show state representatives that they need to prioritize passing HB 1936 so that Aqua and other corporations cannot attack well-functioning, publicly-owned water systems. Below is an example of an email you can send, but it will be more powerful if you personalize it. Some personal points you may wish to mention include:
- How it would negatively impact you if your water bill went up by hundreds of dollars.
- Why it is important to you that PA’s water systems remain publicly owned, and not owned by corporations.
- If your water system is publicly owned, what you like about it and why you want to protect it from sale.
- If your water system is owned by Aqua or another corporation, how have you been impacted negatively? How much has your water bill gone up? How has the quality of customer service been impacted?
