The Great Lakes are a national treasure, and economically support a $7 billion fishing industry, $16 billion boating industry, and 1.5 million jobs. The introduction of Asian carp and other species puts the well-being of our communities, wildlife, and waters at risk.
Devastating Slurry Spill in South East Ohio
October 4th, 2010
On Friday October 1st, it happened again. Murray Energy’s coal pipeline carrying toxic coal slurry through southeast Ohio burst open on Friday, flooding a pristine creek and surrounding areas with over 1/4 million gallons of thick, black sludge.
Watch our video of the scene and tell Governor Strickland to take action to prevent another toxic spill.
This is at least the seventh time since 1999 that coal slurry has poured into Captina creek, killing fish and putting the future of the already endangered eastern hellbender salamander at risk.
