Protect the Public From Contaminant Linked to Fetal Brain Damage

Target: Andrew Wheeler, Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency

Goal: Don’t revoke limits against dangerous water contaminant linked to fetal and infant brain damage.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has opted against limits on perchlorate, a water contaminant found in rocket fuel. The chemical has been linked to fetal and infant brain damage.

The new policy would revoke a 2011 finding that the chemical should be regulated due to the danger it poses to public health. The policy also defies a more recent court order that required the EPA to establish a safe-drinking water standard for the chemical by the end of June. According to agency staff, the EPA intends to send a federal register to the White House for review that declares it is “not in the public interest” to regulate perchlorate.

Studies have already proven that the chemical is dangerous to public health, and therefore it is in the interest of the public to establish limits. Sign below to demand the EPA reverse its decision to revoke limits on perchlorate and instead regulate the harmful chemical in order to protect the public.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Wheeler,

There is no reason to revoke limits on a chemical that has already been linked to fetal and infant brain damage.

This evidently dangerous water contaminant should be regulated, especially when the spread of coronavirus already presents an imminent threat to public health. I demand that you reverse your decision to revoke limits on perchlorate and instead regulate this harmful chemical in order to prevent fetal and infant brain damage.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
