More than two months ago President Obama nominated Gina McCarthy, a dedicated public servant with nearly three decades of experience, to be EPA Administrator. We’re still waiting for the Senate to confirm her. You can make sure she gets a vote, and that your Senators vote YES, by telling your Senators “I stand with Gina!” Click here to tell your Senators!
Right now many important wetlands and streams – the drinking water sources for nearly 117 million Americans - are vulnerable to pollution and destruction. Join your neighbors and the thousands of Clean Water Action members today and tell the President to take action now to protect all our nation’s waters.
There are more than 600 coal-fired power plants in the US and they account for more than 50% of the toxic pollution, including heavy metals like arsenic, lead, and mercury, in our water. This pollution affects everyone and it’s time to do something about it. You can make the difference – send a message to the President today!
Thankfully the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will soon propose new policies to require coal-fired power plants to limit the amount of toxic pollutants they dump in our water. These policies are more than thirty years overdue. Unfortunately the coal industry and power companies are already trying to block them. We need you to take action - Urge President Obama to move forward with plans for strong protections from toxic coal plant wastewater by sending him a letter today!
