Do Not Poison the Neuse River With Industrial Discharges

Target: Elizabeth S. Biser, Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality

Goal: Enhance water quality in the Neuse River.

North Carolina’s Neuse River, a vital artery of the state’s natural landscape, is in a state of crisis. Polluted runoff, industrial discharges, and agricultural waste are poisoning its waters. The situation is urgent, demanding immediate and effective solutions.

The Neuse River is not merely a body of water; it’s a lifeline for communities, wildlife, and local economies. Its degradation poses serious health risks, disrupts local ecosystems, and could spell disaster for industries like fishing and tourism.

Sign the petition to compel the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality to act swiftly in rectifying the water quality of the Neuse River. Essential actions should include stricter pollution controls, community engagement, and the implementation of sustainable water management practices.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Biser,

The Neuse River, a cornerstone of North Carolina’s ecological and cultural heritage, is at a critical juncture. Its waters are tainted by a cocktail of pollutants, from industrial waste to agricultural runoff. The facts are undeniable: rising levels of toxins, dwindling aquatic life, and a looming public health crisis.

We insist on immediate, impactful action. A holistic, multi-faceted approach is essential for turning the tide. This must include stringent pollution controls, active community involvement, and the adoption of sustainable water management practices.

Ignoring the plight of the Neuse River is not an option. This river is more than a geographical feature; it’s a symbol of North Carolina’s natural beauty and community spirit.

Act with the urgency this critical situation demands. Take steps that will not only ameliorate the current state of the Neuse River, but also ensure its long-term health and vitality.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. The Neuse River is a lifeline for communities, wildlife, and local economies. Its’ deliberate pollution poses serious health risks, disrupts local ecosystems, and disaster for industries like fishing and tourism. There must be payoffs involved for this much pollution both from industry along with animal waste. Who is in charge? They must be fired! They don’t deserve to be in charge as they have done a miserable job. It’s evident! No wonder people, animals, and wildlife are getting sick and dying. Stupidity is in charge! Whereis the law? These businesses need to be fined, money taken to clean up paid for by those who polluted and officials that stood by and washed. What a waste our system is to allow this type of criminal action to take place and then not to be charged. Throw the lot in prison where they belong. There are no reasons or excuses except they are greedy people killing living beings! That’s murder!
