WVRC addressed a crowd of concerned citizens at a community meeting in Charleston
Still thousands of West Virginians are waiting for water, and many groups continue to coordinate relief efforts to get water to them. At the same time, many people who have been given the green light to use their water tell WVRC they do not yet feel safe to do so.
The West Virginia Rivers Coalition has begun a push for meaningful reforms that take a thorough approach to protecting our water. In Charleston this week, WVRC worked directly with lawmakers to ensure that proposals emerging from the legislature create real change. The status quo will not do.
, WVRC Executive Director Angie Rosser met with Senate Majority Leader John R. Unger II, lead sponsor ofSB 373, which would establish an Aboveground Storage Tank Regulatory Program. This is a positive first step, but we’ve got a long way to go.
Uniting for Clean Water
WVRC is leading, and just as importantly, we’re listening. More than ever before, we are hearing a growing cry for protecting the rivers and streams that are our lifeline.
Many WVRC supporters have already contributed financially to this urgent work. We still need to raise $8,200 to fund our Policy Workgroup and advocacy efforts on your behalf.
