During the 2010 Oil Disaster, BP applied 1.84 million gallons of Corexit dispersant , stating that "it’s as safe as Dawn dishwashing liquid.” However, recent reports highlight the toxicity and potential health impacts of dispersants in general, and Corexit in particular. Despite clear legal requirements for comprehensive testing, EPA has failed to conduct this testing on dispersants currently approved for use.Take action to tell EPA that they must complete necessary toxicity testing on dispersants before unleashing them into our environment and communities.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Gulf Restoration Network.
Does the EPA know if dispersants are safe to use?
