EPA: Get It Done

Protect Michigan's Water from Toxic Dumping!

EPA: Get It DoneFor too long, the coal industry has polluted our precious Great Lakes and waterways. As stewards of 1/5 of the world’s fresh water, we can’t afford to allow coal plants to continue toxic chemical dumping.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed long-overdue power plant pollution standards to limit the amount of toxic metals and other chemicals that can be dumped in our water. Unfortunately the coal industry is already trying to block them.

Tell the President to require Michigan power plants to clean up their pollution, our Great Lakes way of life depends on it - send a comment today!

Stop Ontario Power Generation from polluting the Great Lakes!

Stop Ontario Power Generation from polluting the Great Lakes!Ontario Power Generation (OPG), a multi-billion dollar Canadian power company, is trying to build a nuclear waste dump underground less than 1 mile from the shores of Lake Huron. Some of the waste they want to bury will remain toxic for over 100,000 years. That’s longer than the Great Lakes have even been around!

This nuclear waste dump puts our precious Great Lakes, a drinking water source for over 40 million people, at risk. We must take action now before it’s too late. Tell Minister Aglukkaq and the Canadian federal government to stand up for our Great Lakes and oppose OPG’s dangerous plan!
