Protect Americans from Toxic Coal Ash

    1. Sponsored by

      Environmental Defense Action Fund

Coal ash is one of the most dangerous environmental threats you may never have heard of. The leftover waste of coal-fired power plants contains some really nasty and toxic materials – arsenic, lead, mercury, and more.

If you live near a coal-fired power plant, your drinking water may already be contaminated. That's because right now coal ash is less strictly controlled than household garbage.

But, thanks to proposed new rules drafted by the Environmental Protection Agency, you have the chance to protect your family, your community, and your fellow Americans from this toxic pollution.

Please take action in support of the EPA rule for tough federal standards on coal-burning power plants to more safely dispose coal ash waste.
