June 13, 2013 OWASA Agenda

Facebook Invite

The Orange Water and Sewer Authority, a body of  “directors” who were appointed by the Chapel Hill Town Council to oversee the management of Our water, has made an announcement that they are going to consider Our petitions against the medication of our water supplies this coming Thursday June 13, 2013.

Also known as OWASA this body of people decide whether or not the Orange County, Chapel Hill & Carrboro area will continue a nearly 60 year old policy of medicating our public drinking water.  This excerpt from OWASA’s website says clearly that they are tasked with “Making policy decisions,” which Fluoridation most certainly is:

OWASA is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors. The Chapel Hill Town Council appoints five, the Carrboro Board of Aldermen appoints two and the Orange County Board of Commissioners appoints two Board Members. The OWASA Board adopts the annual budget; sets rates, fees and charges based on cost-of-service principles; approves bond issues to fund capital projects; makes policy decisions; and appoints the Executive Director, General Counsel and Independent Auditor.

Please see the official note from Executive Assistant Andy Orbich;

The OWASA Board of Directors will meet on Thursday, June 13, 2013, at 7:00 p.m., in OWASA’s Community Room, 400 Jones Ferry Road in Carrboro. 

Item 5 of the Agenda is to Consider Citizens’ Petitions regarding Fluoridation of OWASA Drinking Water.  The June 13th agenda is available on our website (under About OWASA/Board of Directors’ Meeting).

Thank you,

Andrea Orbich, CMC

I have appeared at OWASA meetings twice now along with several others in the area to protest the forced medication of our water supplies, and I urge you to join us!  I will be attending to discuss the ethical problems with this practice with a specific focus on legality & liability risk.

I am hoping to make progress in this regard, since Chair of the OWASA Board Alan Rimer seems thus far desperately unaware that OWASA is even, as a board, medicating the water supply.  Understanding this is the most basic but CRUCIAL concept for our civil servants to grasp if we are ever to then communicate that they are liable for all the damage done as a result of this longstanding policy.

My second appearance resulted in a longer disquisition on the principles of this matter.  Board member Will Raymond in the below video actually lies, to my face, about what is stated very clearly on OWASA’s own website.  As you can see, even OWASA’s own documents state that Fluoride is a “Discharge from fertilizer and aluminum factories” and yet in the below video Will Raymond refutes this obvious fact!

Will either does not read his organization’s own website or is just a liar and needs to be exposed:

I would also like to point out the recent video essay published here exposing in more detailed fashion that the OWASA Board as a whole seems not to understand this very basic obvious fact.   Click here to read “Why Doesn’t Government Know Their Own Definition Of A Medication?

If you would like to see the OWASA board’s incompetence exposed from Parker & Zach’s perspective, please give some time to his entry in the Operation Paul Revere Contest entitled “Obtuse Academy” (Runtime 50 minutes)
