Don’t Let Dirty Power Plants Dump Polluted Waste Water Into our Lakes and Rivers

In a gift to their coal industry allies, President Trump and the EPA are pushing to roll back rules cracking down on dirty coal plants that dump polluted wastewater into our rivers, lakes, and streams. This wastewater exposes millions of people to a toxic brew of mercury, arsenic, lead and selenium — pollutants that can cause serious health problems and increase cancer risks. URGENT: Submit your letter of protest before the Tuesday, January 21 public comment deadline.
