Clarence dawson has been hurting the towns residents for years with his uneducated decisions. I don’t mean that statement in a rude way, I mean that he does not take the time to find the facts and history of an issue, he just simply wants it his way and is very defensive. The simple fact that he signed us residents to a long term contract with the vanport water authority is proof enough. It is a known fact , from the PA DEP , that the wells vanport draws our water from is from a contaminated source from the old Westinghouse plant. His decision to have us drink this water is poisoning all of us. Of course he is on well water and doesn’t drink the poison he signed us up on to drink. How do you, Clarence , sleep at night? He or no other council member ever attended any of the town meetings that the PA DEP had concerning the toxins in the water that we are drinking.

I cannot comment about clarence but i can comment on the water. Your water is treated by two air stripping towers that remove 100% of the TCE. Also the Levels of TCE are so minute. Your water is very clean! It’s just hard water with calcium and manganese. Stop spreading fear among residents.

Its obvious that this person must work for vanport water. YOU have to quit defending the quality and safety of your water, don’t put your job before peoples health. And your statement “its just hard water” etc is pitiful. Why don’t you foot the bill for all the seniors and low income families struggling, who because of your water now have to put in new water softener systems that are costing them thousands of dollars!

What is “obvious” is that you are eager to be insulting without knowing anything. Maybe you’d rather pay 4x’s for the water that came from Midland and the pristine Ohio River.

Mr. “obvious”, your water comes from the ohio river too!!! it not only gets the contaminants from the ohio river above ground but also all the chemicals from the old Westinghouse plant underground. I do know what i’m talking about. I apologize if I came across as insulting, I am just tired of all of us drinking the water we do, I am just very compassionate about all our health issues stemming from the water we all drink.

it’s true, vanport uses well water from the ohio river. and yes it is more contaminated than the ohio river. I also went to the public DEP meeting in vanport.

the water authority meeting of aug. 13th was attended by close to a 100 residents. a majority of the people present had been told by the boro employees that they had a leaking toilet. some paid for a reg. plumber to prove this was not true. every one should attend the next water auth. meeting.this should be the 2nd tues. of sept. mr. dawson admitted that the water use info. was manually entered into the computer.!!! if there is an investigation into this issue, mr. dawson did not admit to it. why? I am going on line to print out forms for the state utility and state attorney gen. I recommend every one document every conversation with boro auth. time date who you spoke with. keep copies of every bill or expense.

we need to vote Clarence out! he takes care of himself and doesn’t care about the residents of ohioville. he has no background or knowledge of water and the poisons we are all getting from Vanport Water. I was also at the public meeting in Vanport that the DEP held, where were you Clarence?! It was a very alarming meeting. We ARE drinking toxic water! The DEP admitted that our water quality is suspect. We all have to attend the next meeting and demand the boro council to do right by us residents, get rid of Clarence.
