Tell EPA: Stop Slaughterhouse Pollution
Dear EPA Administrator Regan,
Meat processing plants are dumping huge volumes of pollution into our nation's rivers, contributing to toxic algal outbreaks and threatening our drinking water sources.
Please update the effluent limitation guidelines - and issue pretreatment standards - for the Meat and Poultry Products category of industrial dischargers to America's waterways, as required by the Clean Water Act. These actions are urgently needed to protect our water and our health.
