Support for Genting's casino proposal in Sterling Forest

Water is the most basic of human resources. Every living creature needs water to survive, and it is of the utmost importance that we protect the rivers, lakes and reservoirs that sustain the State of New York.

Upstate, our watersheds have been threatened by natural and unnatural causes for years.

Regrettably, few communities and businesses have the immense resources needed to protect our water supply.

Luckily, some do.
As part of their proposed Sterling Forest Resort Development, Genting Americas has publicly committed to building a $25 million water reclamation facility.

The resort would be the first in the U.S. to purify wastewater to potable standards, which would actually enhance the local watershed.

Your average developer would never commit to such a thing.

It is imperative that we support Genting's bid for the Sterling Forest Resort because they have already strongly indicated their support and care for our community.

Aside from the jobs and revenue the project would bring in, they have taken the time to ensure the safety and protection of our environment.

As members of the upstate community, we should recognize their commitment and return the favor.
