Project Title & Description
SRCAP / Hopson Village Environmental Justice Program Project
The Southeast Rural Community Assistance Project (SRCAP) will work with and provide technical assistance to residents in Suffolk, Virginia in order to resolve problems with the community's drinking water supply. The community's two public water supply wells have unusually high levels of fluoride. This grant will allow SRCAP to develop alternative solutions to the drinking water problem in this environmental-justice community, and hold public meetings in order to describe the various options to the community. A solution that is acceptable to the community will eventually be developed, with SRCAP continuing to provide technical and educational assistance to the community.
