It's time for Congress to stand up for what's right and put a stop to the devastation of our rivers, streams and headwaters caused by mountaintop removal mining.

Sign this petition to support the Clean Water Protection Act, which would protect our waters from being filled with millions of tons of waste from mountaintop removal mining.

Help us get the message to Congress that we will not stand for coal companies to destroy our mountains and pollute our water. Sign the petition today!

Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
Earthjustice and its partners, the Appalachian Center for the Economy and the Environment, Coal River Mountain Watch, the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition, the Sierra Club, and the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy, and all of the people who have signed this petition, support the Clean Water Protection Act and ask that Congress take immediate action to pass it.

We are appalled that coal mining companies have been allowed to get away with dumping mining waste into our waters, doing irreparable harm to the rivers, streams and lakes that our communities and ecosystems depend upon.

We demand immediate action to protect our waters from further permanent destruction. The Clean Water Protection Act, which would restore previous rules against dumping mining waste into our waters, is a critical step in preventing the destruction of our most precious natural resource.

We are standing up for what's right, and you should too! Pass the Clean Water Protection Act and protect our rivers, streams and headwaters for the health and enjoyment of future generations.
