Volunteer your time to protect area water supplies from dioxane pollution

SRSW often needs new volunteers to help keep the community informed about the state of the Pall-Gelman groundwater contamination, ongoing cleanup attempts, and impacts on area water supplies.

SRSW performs the following tasks as volunteer time allows:

  • Staff SRSW booths at area community events
  • Keep SRSW-supplied materials organized and up-to-date at the public library
  • Deliver SRSW updates at various City, County, and Township council, commission, and board meetings
  • Publicize and prepare for DEQ public hearings/public meetings
  • Generate SRSW newsletters
  • Create video presentations to inform public and decision makers about past and present cleanup issues
  • Produce maps and charts to help decision makers understand issues
  • Review all report submittals from the DEQ and Pall
  • Review and analyze all cleanup and plume sampling data
  • Keep a comprehensive database on the Pall/Gelman contamination and cleanup
  • Review reports with local government policy makers, administration, and technical staff
  • Issue email alerts and press releases
  • Maintain SRSW website
  • Write editorial page articles and letters to the editor to keep the community informed
  • Work with news people and editorial boards to keep the facts straight and on target
  • Keep a library of archival information
  • Provide information about residential well testing for homeowners
  • Answer questions from existing and potential homeowners
  • Keep membership records and process membership fees
  • Manage special fundraising efforts as needed
  • Liaison with other environmental groups facing similar challenges
