Protect California's Waters From Industrial Pollution

Action: Stop Pollution

August 22, 2013   Action Alert ID# 113

 

Landfills, oil refineries, metal-recycling plants and other industrial facilities send polluted runoff into California's waterways -- contaminating beaches, coastal areas and rivers with toxic pollutants like lead and aluminum, which harm both wildlife and human health.

The state's Industrial General Storm Water Permit is intended to regulate this type of pollution, but the old version is extremely outdated and in desperate need of updating. The California State Water Resources Control Board has recently issued a final draft of their update to the 15-year old permit -- but unfortunately, after more than two years of work, the current draft permit fails to make necessary improvements, and in several respects it weakens industrial-pollution controls.

For more than two years the Center for Biological Diversity's allies at California Coastkeeper Alliance have been fighting to improve polluted runoff regulations -- and now they need our help.

Tell the California State Water Resources Control Board to develop a strong new Industrial General Storm Water Permit that requires everyone to do their part to protect California's waters and the wildlife that depend on it.
