Shut Down Company That Flooded Town and Potentially Released Toxic Chemicals

Chemical site - Christopher Maldonado

Target: Neil Chatterjee, Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

Goal: Revoke license of company that caused devastating floods and potentially released toxic substances from chemical plant

A dam failure has flooded a small town in Michigan and potentially released toxic chemicals that could irreparably damage the environment. The floodwaters are reportedly commingling with contamination ponds at the nearby Dow chemical plant, which means toxic substances could be spread throughout local residential and agricultural lands.

Boyce Hydro Power LLC has a history of failures and has been cited for safety violations in the past. Now, it has caused devastation in a community already struggling with COVID-19 — potentially sparking an environmental disaster that the town may never recover from. Sign below to demand that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission revoke this company’s license immediately.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Chatterjee,

In the midst of a pandemic, the people of Midland, Michigan are now being forced to evacuate their homes due to the failure of two dams at Boyce Hydro Power LLC. This company has been cited for endangering the safety of local communities in the past, but this recent failure in Midland indicates that it has learned nothing from these citations.

At best, the floods caused by Boyce Hydro Power have caused undue stress, financial loss, and property damage to the citizens of Midland. At worst, these floods may cause much greater damage by spreading toxic substances from the Dow chemical company. I demand that you stop this company from causing any further destruction in the future by revoking its license immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
