Protect Our Rivers From Toxic Mountain top Removal Waste

Location: West Virginia

The Coal River supplies drinking water for local communities, supports fish and wildlife, and boasts a water trail for fishing, boating, and other recreation. But the river is threatened by mountaintop removal coal mining, which has already buried, poisoned, and destroyed miles of streams in the basin.

Congress must restore Clean Water Act protections to the Coal’s headwater streams in order to prevent more destructive mining and permanently safeguard clean water and public health.
