Register to Attend Our Water, Our Future September 6-9, 2014 in Washington, DC

Earlier this year 300,000 gallons of a toxic coal-processing chemical called MCHM spilled into the Elk River in Southern West Virginia. Only weeks later, thousands of gallons of slurry leaked into a Virginia waterway, flowing into neighboring North Carolina. These events were followed by yet another spill in West Virginia’s Kanawha County. Though some of these disastrous and dangerous spills made national news, these events are hardly unprecedented for our region.

Mountaintop removal and other coal industry abuses have long comprised the waters of Central Appalachia. 2,000 miles of stream have been buried by mountaintop removal alone. Last year at The Alliance for Appalachia we launched the Our Water, Our Future Campaign to end this trend.

On September 8th-9th, we are asking allies to join Appalachian leaders for a day of training and a day of action to get the safe water Appalachia needs from Washington DC for Our Water and Our Future.
