Tell Lisa Jackson to Veto Spruce Mine
The EPA has a very important decision to make- whether or not to veto the Spruce Mine in West Virginia.
The proposed Spruce Mine will be the largest mountaintop removal (MTR) mine site in all of Appalachia. The EPA's own scientists recommend that the mine be vetoed, to prevent devastating impacts on the surrounding watershed.
Please call EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson today to demand that she issue a final determination and veto the Spruce Mine permit.
Step-By-Step Guide to Calling the EPA
1. Dial 202-564-4700 and ask to speak with Administrator Jackson.
2. If you get the Administrator herself on the phone, great! If you get transferred to a voicemail box or secretary, that's also fine.
3. Introduce yourself by stating your name and where you live.
4. Deliver your message: "The Spruce Mine is the largest MTR mine site in West Virginia and is an example of the devastating practice of mountaintop removal coal mining. Please take a stand for the mountains and people of Appalachia and veto this permit."
5. Thank whomever is listening to you and hang up.
6. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done!
