Clean Up Contaminated Waterways in the Wabash River Basin

Target: Jim Weingart, Director of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management

Goal: Initiate immediate and comprehensive cleanup efforts to restore the Wabash River Basin’s contaminated waterways.

The Wabash River Basin, located in Indiana, represents a critical natural resource and ecosystem that is currently confronting an urgent environmental crisis. Over many decades, a combination of unchecked industrial activities and inadequate regulatory oversight has given rise to a pervasive issue: widespread water contamination. This crisis poses a dual threat, jeopardizing not only the delicate balance of the ecosystem but also the well-being of the local population.

The contamination of water sources in this region encompasses various harmful elements, ranging from heavy metals to hazardous chemicals and sewage. These pollutants have infiltrated the rivers and streams, causing irreversible harm to aquatic life. Furthermore, this dire situation places the communities that depend on these waters at risk, as their health and livelihoods are intimately connected to the health of the river basin.

Sign the petition below to demand that the Indiana Department of Environmental Management take swift and decisive measures to clean up the contaminated waterways of the Wabash River Basin, safeguarding the environment and the well-being of its residents.


Dear Director Weingart,

The urgency of this plea cannot be overstated. The Wabash River Basin’s once-thriving waterways now teeter on the brink of catastrophe due to decades of contamination. The toll on the environment and the communities dependent on these waters is undeniable.

In response to this crisis, it is imperative to take immediate, comprehensive measures to address the pollution, strengthen environmental regulations, and remediate the damage inflicted on this invaluable natural resource. The restoration of the Wabash River Basin is not just an ecological necessity; it’s a moral obligation to protect both the environment and the health of the communities that call this region home.

The continued delay in addressing water contamination poses a grave risk to the health and vitality of the region. We implore you to launch comprehensive cleanup efforts without further delay, ensuring the safety of the water sources and the well-being of the communities.
