Tell Congress: Don’t remove, weaken, or delay coal ash protections
Help us reach our goal of 15,000 messages
Hundreds of coal ash disposal sites are spilling, leaking, and polluting the waters we drink, fish, and swim in with arsenic, lead, mercury and more.
Last year, Earthjustice forced the Environmental Protection Agency to issue a coal ash rule that at long last establishes health and safety requirements for toxic ash disposal. But polluters and their cronies in Congress will do whatever it takes to make sure those protections never see the light of day.
A bad bill—S. 1803—removes, weakens and delays critical safety protections established by EPA in the agency’s first-ever coal ash rule.
We need to stop this bill NOW. Tell your Senator to oppose S. 1803 and protect our waters and communities.
- Martin’s Creek, Pennsylvania: August 2005
- Kingston, Tennessee: December 2008
- Oak Creek, Wisconsin: October 2011
- Eden, North Carolina: February 2014
At these four sites alone, nearly six million tons of toxic coal ash spilled into nearby lakes, rivers and streams.
Without effective federal coal ash regulations, it’s not a matter of if another tragic spill will happen…it’s a matter of when and where.
Don’t let our elected officials represent the interests of polluters by blocking federal coal ash safeguards!
Take action now to clean up coal ash and provide relief to communities across the country being polluted by this toxic waste.
