You Still Have Time to Speak Out to Preserve an Essential Protection from Coal Ash Pollution
Do you want a strong right to be heard if, in the future, an industry attempts to store toxic coal ash near your home?
If industry-proposed guidelines are approved by the EPA, you will lose many rights to be heard during the permitting process used to authorize new coal ash disposal sites.
A hearing on whether to adopt the proposed rule was held in Oklahoma City on February 13. It is essential that EPA hear from citizens who want to preserve their right to be heard during the authorization of new toxic storage sites. There is still time to get your comments in to EPA. They were listening and good comments were made and yours will be, too.
