Call on the EPA to Treat Toxic Coal Ash as a Hazardous Waste

Nov 9, 2010 | Archive

Around six-hundred coal ash storage ponds in 35 states across the U.S., some as large as 900 acres, contain billions of gallons of toxic coal ash that have high levels of arsenic, lead and mercury. The EPA is proposing tough new federal safeguards and monitoring of coal ash to protect the environment and human health.

Your voice is needed now to support the proposed protections and to counter the coal industry, which is mounting a fight. Send your letter as is, or add additional comments. Once submitted, we will send your email immediately to the EPA for review and inclusion in the public comment connected to the proposed coal ash ruling. Thank you!
