Target: U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam

Goal: Impose the maximum sentence for the person convicted of dumping trash in federally protected wetlands.

A commercial waste broker has been indicted for allegedly dumping trash into federally protected wetlands. The Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge is home to several endangered species. Demand the maximum penalty for the person convicted of this crime.

A man was charged with two counts of violating the U.S. Clean Water Act after he allegedly dumped construction debris and other fill material into the wetlands. Reports indicate that the man charged a fee to local trucking companies and contractors for the illegal disposal of their waste.

Fifteen habitat types exist in the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge. It is home to many threatened and endangered species. Illegal dumping contaminates the wetlands and puts these species, and the wetlands themselves, at risk. Sign below to put an end to illegal dumping.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Judge Gilliam,

A commercial waste broker has been charged with illegally dumping debris into the wetlands of the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge. This refuge is protected under the U.S. Clean Water Act and should be defended to the maximum degree.

The Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge is home to over 280 species of migratory birds and several federally listed endangered species. It is meant to be a safe place for all plant and animal life. Illegal dumping undermines the purpose of the refuge and puts these species in danger.

Illegal dumping is a crime against the environment with a maximum punishment of three years in prison for each count. We demand that the person convicted receive the maximum penalty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
