“SYNGENTA SETTLEMENT: Cash For Water Districts” is the heading of an article on the Internet dated Jan. 24, 2013, by Kelly Maricle.

Creston Water Supply was one of six water districts in Iowa receiving more than $250,000 from Syngenta to regain money spent on removing the chemical atrazine from the water.

“Science has been fighting an uphill battle against giant pesticide manufacturers like Sygenta who claim that a little weed killer in your drinking water won’t hurt you. Independent scientists now believe, however, that even trace amounts can harm you and your children for generations to come,” says Stephen M. Tillery, senior partner of Korein Tillery, law firm that represented the water districts.

So $250,000 or more or the well being of you and your children. You be the judge.

Speak out for clean water. Join Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement (ICCI) and join the fight for clean water with their Clean Water Now campaign.

Silence is consent.
