Say NO to shipping fracking waste on barges

Bridge over the Ohio RiverWhen companies drill wells to frack for oil and natural gas, the process creates millions of gallons of wastewater that's laden with toxic chemicals. Now, the Coast Guard is considering allowing this hazardous waste to be shipped on barges on the Ohio River. Barges are not nearly safe enough for transporting such a dangerous substance.

Tell the Coast Guard: keep fracking waste off our rivers!

Please edit the letter below, and we'll deliver your  message directly to decision-makers at the Coast Guard.
