It costs money to sign this petition.

Suffern needs a plan for drainage. The plan they have isn't working. "Dumping into the Mahwah River". Being a resident of New Jersey, anything our Town fixes in the way of correcting our issues will make very little difference if Suffern continues using it for all of its River overflow and drainage. The Quarry site with a pumping system would be the perfect fix. This will allow the drainage issues of Suffern a place to go instead of flowing into the Mahwah River and causing flooding in our homes.

I agree with Hank. I would love to be able to learn more about this issue and the proposed solution that is mentioned in the petition. Is there a website, news article or maybe even a blog posting that we can read which gives greater detail on this issue?

Thank you for the link Jessica. We met with News12 today. We voiced all of our concerns. We spoke with them about the need for the Suffern Quarry to be used for Flood Remediation. We explained how important this Petition is for the Town of Mahwah and the citizens of Suffern. Everything positive is a step in the wright direction.
