Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
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.
