Sign On to Support the EPA Decision to Deny Unsafe Dumping of Toxic Coal Ash

Apr, 2023 - Sign our letter to the U.S. EPA today to support the U.S. EPA preliminary decision to deny an application for an energy company to continue dumping toxic coal ash into unlined waste ponds at two coal-fired power plants in Michigan. Current disposal methods use outdated management practices and are not protecting groundwater. But the company still has an opportunity to refute this claim during the public comment period which will close on April 10th. Freshwater Future will send it to the U.S. EPA on April 10th. Don't wait, it only takes a minute to sign on.

Tell the Michigan DNR to Deny Camp Grayling Lease Expansion!

Feb, 2023 - The Michigan National Guard is requesting to lease an additional 162,000 acres of state recreation lands around the Camp Grayling training facility, more than doubling their current lease of 148,000 acres.  However, recreation users are concerned that the planned uses may change and training activities will hinder public use or damage resources in the 480 square mile lease area. Past training activities at the Camp resulted in contamination of the drinking water source from toxic fire-fighting foams that contain PFAS. Please share your opinion and concerns about the proposed expansion. The Michigan DNR is accepting comments through February 8, 2023.
