Take Action: Tell EPA to Finalize Strong Coal Ash Safeguards
World Water Day, taking place on March 22, 2014, draws attention to the nexus between energy production and water. This year, multiple coal-fueled crises have reminded all of us just how tenuous our right to clean water can be if we don't protect our rivers, lakes, and streams from toxic coal pollution. There are still no federal safeguards to protect our communities from coal ash or other water pollution caused by burning.
Tell the EPA we have waited long enough and that it's time to finalize new coal ash protections.
