Tell WV DEP: Coal River Mountain is Not a Dump!
Please join Coal River Mountain Watch at the Clear Fork Elementary School, 4851 Clear Fork Rd, Artie, WV, 25008 on April 12 at 6:00 p.m. to speak out against these proposed revisions.
Learn more here.
Note: If needed, the Alliance for Appalachia can help you with mileage reimbursements if you attend the hearing. For details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even if you can’t attend in person, please sign this petition to tell DEP that Coal River Mountain is not a dump and that the permit revisions should be denied. Not only do the permit revisions endanger the community’s health and safety, they simply do not meet any reclamation standards set forth to restore ecosystems, forests or garner resources for the community.
Your voice in this matter is important and is appreciated!
