tell state officials: step up Texas cleanup standards!
Unfortunately, our current state pollution cleanup standards are incredibly weak — even after Texas officials declare a site “fully remediated,” it could still be as polluted as a Superfund site in another state. Tell state officials that we want protections just as strong as the national standards, because Texas deserves nothing less!
U.S. EPA: support full removal of the San Jacinto River waste pits
A toxic Superfund site in the San Jacinto River has been leaking dioxins into the river and Galveston bay for decades. The EPA has proposed a plan to fully remove the site, but powerful polluters are fighting for cheaper alternatives that could threaten our environment. Take action to make sure that the EPA gets the polluters to fully remove the toxic San Jacinto River Waste Pits!
