Contact the EPA
By Phone & Email
Call and email Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy (202-564-4700; email@example.com) and tell her:
- More dredging of PCB-contaminated sediments is needed to achieve a truly clean Hudson River.
- The federal Fish and Wildlife Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have shown that the remaining PCB contamination will continue to put the health of riverfront communities at risk, and research from NOAA indicates that the initial goals of the EPA’s cleanup will not be met.
- Studies have linked chronic exposure to airborne PCBs with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hormonal imbalances, learning disabilities and other maladies among people who live in Hudson Riverfront communities.
- The long struggle to remove PCBs from the Hudson—the nation’s largest Superfund site—sets a standard for cleanups of polluted air and water across the nation.
- Federal inaction and corporate shortsightedness will continue imperiling the health and safety of anyone who lives along the Hudson—the EPA must act.
