Lexington Kentucky wants to buy back their water company from German conglomerate RWE. The courts just ruled against a vote on this based on a technicality. Bluegrass FLOW continues to fight for Lexington to own their water. They document how the current private ownership has, among other things, resulted in billing errors and lost revenue for the city.
And it’s going on in Pennsylvania too.
Lehigh County, two townships oppose sale to Pennsylvania Aqua.
The fight to keep a local water company away from water-giant Aqua Pennsylvania Inc. will be assigned to an arbitrator this week as a result of protests filed by several municipalities and more than 200 customers.
It’s clear. The people want public ownership of their water.
