For too long, the coal industry has polluted our precious Great Lakes and waterways. As stewards of 1/5 of the world’s fresh water, we can’t afford to allow coal plants to continue toxic chemical dumping.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed long-overdue power plant pollution standards to limit the amount of toxic metals and other chemicals that can be dumped in our water. Unfortunately the coal industry is already trying to block them.

Lake St. Clair: Do Your Part!
We need your input about our water resources including the Clinton River, its tributaries and Lake St. Clair. Can you please take a few moments to complete this survey?
Lake St. Clair is often referred to as the heart of the Great Lakes, due to both its shape and position within the Great Lakes system. It is an important recreational, commercial, and aesthetic resource for nearly six million residents on both sides of the border. However, this vital and unique connecting waterway is being threatened by the harmful effects of stormwater runoff pollution.
Stormwater runoff occurs when rainwater and melting snow washes off parking lots, roads, driveways and rooftops collecting and depositing pollutants—such as excess fertilizer, oil, trash and feces—directly into our lakes and streams resulting in water quality and water quantity problems.
We are working to clean up and protect this important Great Lakes waterway – YOU can too!
