Last month, I told you about a controversial court decision that overrode the EPA's veto of the Spruce Mine in West Virginia -- one of the largest mountaintop removal mines ever proposed.
I'm happy to report that the EPA isn't backing down. Thanks to messages like yours, they know Americans won't stand for any of Big Coal's efforts to put communities and their water at risk.
If allowed, the Spruce Mine will dump 110 million cubic yards of mining waste into local waterways, generate toxic pollutants, and bury over six miles of streams -- a clear violation of the Clean Water Act.1
The EPA is fighting back despite Big Coal's relentless attacks because having access to clean water and living in a safe environment is a right that all Americans should have.
Thanks for all you do for the environment!
