Tell Congress: NY Needs a Robust, Fully Funded EPA

seagulls at Croton Landing, National Archives, EPA

President Trump’s attempt to dismantle the EPA is a disaster in the making for New York’s water. We know what New York looks like without an EPA, and we refuse to go backward. Stand up for science and clean water. Urge your member of Congress to fight for New York values by rejecting Trump’s  budget cuts and staff cuts to the EPA.

Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and press 1 for your senators or press 2 for your house representative.

Here’s is a short script and talking points to highlight EPAs critical clean water work in New York.

“Hi my name is _______ and I am calling to ask [Congress member _____ ] to stand up for New York values and protect the EPA from President Trump’s proposed budget cuts. The President’s EPA budget and staff proposal would threaten decades of hard-won progress for New York on clean water. I implore [Congress member _____ ] to reject this proposal and vote no on this dirty water budget.

Report Dead Sturgeon

dead-sturgeon-200Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon are protected by the Endangered Species Act, and New York has committed to limiting impacts on these fish throughout the construction of the Tappan Zee Bridge project. Riverkeeper is carefully monitoring the process, and we’ve retained the right to enforce the permit requirements designed to protect sturgeon if sturgeon are being harmed. Be watchful when visiting the river, and make timely and thorough reports if you observe a dead sturgeon. Report Your Observations.
