We need to put the Mississippi River back to work building land in Louisiana, but a river full of coal runoff cannot build healthy wetlands. Help us make this message clear to the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) by attending a public hearing next week, Wednesday August 14th.
The Comprehensive Master Plan for a Sustainable Coast was unanimously passed by the Louisiana State Legislature. This is Louisiana’s imperfect, best, and last shot at turning the tide of our coastal crisis. But the plan already faces great challenges.
Coal terminals have expanded across the country, and have grown into mountains in Plaquemines Parish. RAM Terminals, LLC is threatening to place another mountain of coal just upstream from the mouth of the Myrtle Grove diversion project.
We cannot let this terminal pollute our last hope for restoration. Please join us:
