Nearly six million tons of toxic coal ash spilled into nearby lakes, rivers and streams at these four sites alone; hundreds of other spills have also happened across the country. Arsenic, lead, mercury and more are destroying the waters where we drink, fish, and swim.
Without federal coal ash regulations, it’s not a matter of if another tragic spill will happen; it’s a matter of when.
Earlier this year, Earthjustice forced the EPA to set a deadline for the first ever federal coal ash safeguards, coming December 19th. But polluters and their cronies in Congress will do whatever it takes to make sure those protections never see the light of day.
Please take a moment to write your Senator and tell her or him to oppose any legislation that scuttles the EPA’s efforts to federally regulate coal ash storage and disposal. For decades, coal ash has polluted our waters and our communities. But finally, an end is in sight. Don’t let our elected officials represent the interests of polluters by blocking federal coal ash safeguards!
