Public Statement to the City of Jersey City
It is with great disappointment and urgency that the Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance (JCRPA) must write this letter. After repeatedly being pressured to concede to decisions made without our input, and refusal from representatives of the City of Jersey City to formally consider our recommendations or pursue consultation from necessary specialists, we formally request the City of Jersey City to stop and not proceed further with entering into any contract, advancing any design, or commencing construction of the City of Jersey City’s Reservoir #3 Site Safety Improvements Project.
