Tell the Environmental Protection Agency: Do not weaken regulations on toxic coal ash pollution
Dear EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler,
I strongly oppose all proposed changes to current coal ash regulations. Toxic coal ash, containing arsenic, mercury, lead and other carcinogens, threatens environmental and public health. With global warming increasing the frequency of heavier rains and storms, it is of the utmost importance the EPA takes action to mitigate the risk of coal ash polluting groundwater. Yet the proposed changes threaten to do the exact opposite. Without strong enforcement of storage regulations, and regular groundwater monitoring to assess potential contamination, people and animals will become poisoned by toxic ash.
By signing this pledge, I affirm my opposition to the EPA's proposed rollbacks to the Coal Ash Rule.
