Stop mandated city water in Gilmer Park, Forest Park, Hartman Place, Swanson Heights and surrounding areas.

I/we the undersigned residents of Gilmer Park, Forest Park, Hartman Place, Swanson Heights and surrounding areas of “South Bend, IN 46614”. Sign below to agree or affirm that we do NOT support or agree to have our homes hooked up to city water, provided to us by the St. Joseph County Water Sewer District. We further more understand that the St. Joseph County Health Officer Dr. Thomas Felgar is concerned about the Nitrate levels in our wells. Our response to that is we do not want to pay expensive hook up cost and monthly fees to have water brought into us that is higher in Nitrates than what we have in our own homes now. (I.E…Erskin pumping station at last report was at 8.7 parts per million in Nitrates and some of our wells are at 5 parts per million or less.) Also a communication provided to South Bend residents show that the city water is currently coming in at 7.5 parts per million for Nitrates which we are being told by Dr. Felgar is dangerous to our health.
