GRN and Partners Call for Action on Dispersants

 

coast guard dispersantOn February 5th, GRN and 62 other organizations sent a letter asking the Environmental Protection Agency to move swiftly to revise their current regulation of chemical dispersants. It's been thirteen years since the EPA first initiated a rulemaking to revise the rules for overseeing and testing of dispersants, and we are still waiting. The need for reform became tragically clear in 2010 during the BP drilling disaster, when nearly 2 million gallons of dispersants were released into the Gulf.

EPA needs to stop stalling on these revised dispersants rules. You can send you own letter to EPA urging them to take action by clicking here.

Raleigh Hoke is GRN's Communications Director.
