Every year, more than 105 million tons of toxic coal ash is generated and stored in impoundments across the US, often leaching dangerous chemicals into our drinking water. This threatens our families’ health and safety, hurting communities of color and low income communities the most.
Now, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt wants to roll back the first-ever federal safeguards against coal ash pollution. He is even proposing to let utilities write their own standards, allowing them to decide if they want to clean up their pollution at all!
Sign the petition to the EPA now, and tell Pruitt that we need the EPA to protect our health, our drinking water, and our communities from toxic coal ash!
