The EPA’s Watershed Moment: A Case for Fish-Friendlier Power

Every year, the United States' aging fleet of coal, oil, gas and nuclear power plants suck in nearly 100 trillion gallons of water from the nation’s rivers, lakes and estuaries through their antiquated cooling systems. In the process, these plants needlessly kill fish and other aquatic life.  Learn more about the damage caused by the nation’s older power plants, and what the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed to do about it, from Executive Director and Hudson Riverkeeper Paul Gallay and environmental attorney Reed Super.

The EPA is looking for your input, so learn more about the agency’s rule, read what others are saying about it and be sure to tell the EPA what you think by July 19th.
