Protect the Gulf - Stop the Dumping of Toxic Fracking Wastewater

Right now, US policy allows offshore drilling operations to dump unlimited toxic wastewater from their platforms into America’s waters in the Gulf of Mexico — along with chemicals like arsenic, benzene, cadmium, lead, formaldehyde, chlorine, and mercury that have been associated with cancer, developmental disabilities and reproductive harms.

These chemicals can contaminate Gulf seafood and poison the imperiled sea turtles, dolphins, and other marine wildlife that rely on Gulf waters for their survival. Environmental Action is committed to protecting these natural treasures, but we need your voice to win.

Take a stand for the environment! Add your name to the petition today and urge the Obama Administration to call for an immediate ban on the dumping of fracking wastewater in the Gulf of Mexico.

Subject: No more fracking wastewater in the Gulf of Mexico!
