Supply Laura R. with Clean Water and a Safe Home!

My name is Josh Hart, and I am the Director of Stop Smart Meters - raising awareness about the hazards of smart utility meters since 2010. I am also the Spokesperson for Plumas Wired, a local group based in Plumas County, CA. We support those who suffer radiation poisoning from wireless proliferation and work toward policy change for safer wired telecommunications in Plumas County and beyond.

Laura R. lives outside Quincy, CA and recently contacted us for assistance. She is very chemically and electrically sensitive. Her well water is polluted by bacteria and is unfit to drink, bathe, or wash laundry with. She is sensitive to sulfur, and her water now reeks of sulfur and has a “waxy” texture.

She lives alone and does not have the money or family resources to fix this problem. Laura cannot live in public housing because this is generally not chemical or EMF safe. She has been living with the issue for over a year.

To make matters worse, Laura is being charged $15 every month (that she cannot afford) to keep a safer analog electric meter on her home. Electricity company PSREC continues to charge even severely emf-disabled people to avoid microwave-emitting meters that make them sick. Please e-mail General Manager Bob Marshall at [email redacted] and ask that all fees be dropped for Laura and others sickened by RF microwave pulses from so-called “smart” meters.

Please donate what you can, and spread the word about our #CleanWaterforLaura campaign on social media so we can make Laura’s life livable again. She is really at the end of her rope and needs the community’s help. She feels too unwell to post a photo of herself. Instead, I have posted a picture of the water deposits in her sink.

We posted this GoFundMe appeal after it became clear that no government institution or non-profit agency was able or willing to help Laura (despite billions in COVID funds that should be available to provide clean water!).

Many people like Laura with severe sensitivities have been injured by overexposure to chemicals or electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Such injury can happen to any of us, as government regulations do not protect us.

Laure’s Immediate Needs:

Laura needs a place she can shower between Quincy and Portola and approximately $4000 for a water filter (UV, filters, etc.) to make her water supply usable again in the short term.

Laura’s Long-Term Needs:

Laura’s well likely needs to be re-drilled. She may need new pipes and other infrastructure installed. Extensive repairs to replace moldy walls are also required. Estimated cost: $80,000 Any additional funds raised will support Laura R.’s basic life needs.

Laura’s statement:

“There is sediment in the toilet tank, and there were silver and black strings in there this summer. It grew a clear slime umbrella thing too. There is a black coating in my toilet.

The fumes from the water blur my vision, make me nauseous and give me brain fog, a sore throat, and my lungs hurt. My lungs are hypersensitive to so many things now. I have swollen lymph nodes, blisters in my nose and such extreme exhaustion I do not tend to daily living needs. It has negatively affected my digestive system, given me more food intolerances and hurt my teeth, and I forget words and how to spell. It is, directly and indirectly, affecting my neurological health.

The hot water is much worse than the cold water, so I can only use cold water. I can’t wash my hands thoroughly in ice-cold water. I can’t take a shower. My skin is re-absorbing the toxins I sweat out.

The water smells like I put a few rotten eggs and a dead mouse in it when I do laundry, so I have not washed my bedding in months.

I’m using bottled water for drinking, cooking and brushing my teeth. Two of my plants died from the water last summer. I’m worn out from it all, with the water fumes and many ongoing health issues that have gotten worse, plus new and scary ones.

I also have a drilling sound or something going on here that’s vibrating my inner ear…even at night. I want to scream…sometimes I do. Sometimes I cry. I don’t even have the energy to brush my teeth every day. If my life gets any more complicated, I will become completely immobilized.

I need clean water right away. I need a shower…The bad water is the last straw of a multitude of difficult to live with things here… and never-ending dust I can’t clean now."
