Take Action: Stop Big Coal's Attack on Carbon Pollution Standards
Take Action: Finalize Coal Ash Standards
For six days, toxic coal ash gushed into North Carolina's Dan River. Ash from coal-burning power plants is full of toxic heavy metals like arsenic, mercury, and lead, which coal companies then dump in pits and ponds with no plan for safe disposal or cleanup. There are no federal safeguards to protect our communities from coal ash or other water pollution caused by burning coal -- and yet there are more than 1,100 coal ash sites like the one on the Dan River.
Tell the EPA we have waited long enough and that it's time to finalize new coal ash protections.
