Help Keep the Focus on Sound Science and Water Protections
We are on our way to raising the money needed to bring forward sound-science that tells us the pollution limits needed to avoid unsafe exposure to toxins and cancer-causing chemicals in our water. So far, with your donations, we’ve been able to hire two scientists to help us gain an in-depth technical understanding of how limits are calculated based on things like cancer risks, body weight and fish/water consumption.
Next, we’ll be attending various public meetings and doing our own analysis of the industry-backed studies. This work is expensive. Chemical manufacturers aren’t sparing any expenses to convince lawmakers to keep the status quo or even weaken our water quality standards. We need to raise $25,000 to provide decision-makers with the facts to make the right choices for our rivers and our health. We’ve already raised $18,500 from donors like you, can you chip in to help us reach our goal? Every dollar helps, donate to WV Rivers Science Fund today.
