When companies drill wells to frack for oil and natural gas, the process creates millions of gallons of wastewater that's laden with toxic chemicals. Now, the Coast Guard is considering allowing this hazardous waste to be shipped on barges on the Ohio River. Barges are not nearly safe enough for transporting such a dangerous substance.
Tell the Coast Guard: keep fracking waste off our rivers!
Please edit the letter below, and we'll deliver your message directly to decision-makers at the Coast Guard.
Oppose the shipping of fracking wastewater on barges
Dear Michael Roldan and U.S. Coast Guard,
I urge you to protect our rivers by rejecting the proposal by GreenHunter Water to ship fracking wastewater on barges down the Ohio River.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
