Sustainability: Mountaintop Removal Issues

Sierra ClubSierra Club

For many people living near mountaintop removal coal mining sites in Appalachia, the water they use for bathing, cooking, and even drinking is cloudy, brown, and toxic. Years of mountaintop removal coal mining has buried 2,000 miles of local streams with waste from Big Coal’s destruction; many of the streams that are left are devoid of life. Well water in the area isn’t safe either, and it’s making people sick.
Tell President Obama and the EPA that everyone deserves clean water. Sign the petition urging them to act now to protect Appalachia from mountaintop removal mining!
