Sierra Club - Explore, enjoy and protect the planet

Dear Friend,

Tell the EPA: Stand strong
and protect Florida's water!

EPA yes FDEP no

Don't let Rick Scott's polluter
friends slime our water!

Take Action!

Last November, the EPA adopted strong standards to combat sewage, manure and fertilizer pollution in Florida's waterways. These rules will save our waters from the toxic slime that puts our drinking water, economy, and precious ecosystems at risk. However, pressure is mounting from Governor Rick Scott and his Big Polluter pals to turn control over to the state’s industry-controlled agency.

We rallied on January 17 in Tampa to give the EPA the support it needs to stay strong, and now we need to get our demands on the record.

Send a message to the EPA today and tell them to protect Florida's environment and fully enforce the Clean Water Act!

Right now, the EPA plans to hand over the regulation of 15 percent of Florida's waterways to Rick Scott’s Department of Environmental Protection. The state's rules are far weaker, and wait too long to be enforced -- only after a water body is already polluted with slime -- and do not include a timeline for clean-up action. We need the stronger EPA standard to ensure our water is protected.

Even worse, if we don’t act now, the EPA is likely to hand protection of the rest of our water over to Rick Scott as well. That's a risk we can’t take.

The deadline for comment submission to the EPA is February 19 -- send your comment today and get your support for clean water on the record.

Together, we’ll ensure that the EPA stands strong and doesn’t cave to polluter pressure. Our water and our way of life is at stake.

Thanks for all you do for the environment,

Frank Jackalone
Sierra Club
