Communities triumph over water privatization

Clean Water for NC was proud to welcome Mary Grant as a speaker at our 28th Annual Meeting, and we’re thrilled to be able to share it with all of you! Mary is a researcher for Food and Water Watch, a national consumer advocacy organization that works to ensure the food, water and fish we consume is safe, accessible and sustainably produced. She was an intern with Clean Water for NC in 2006 while she pursued her B.S. in Environmental Sciences from Duke University, and helped get us started on researching privatization in our state.

In the presentation, you’ll hear her speak about community triumphs over water privatization across the country. As NC faces the growing threat of corporate privatization of small water and sewer systems, it is encouraging to know that at least 60 communities across the nation stopped privatization from 2007 to 2012, and others are taking back public control. She also warns to be on the lookout for new strategies from corporate privatizers in NC. We hope you’ll take away as many useful facts as we did from this informative presentation!
