Action: Tell USEPA and California EPA – Stop Dumping Hazardous Wastes in Kettleman City!
Kettleman City is a low-income, Latino community impacted by pollution from many sources, including a Chemical Waste Management hazardous waste and PCB landfill. Despite birth defects and other health problems, years of chronic permit violations, and discrimination and intimidation against Spanish speaking residents, USEPA and California State Department of Toxic Substances Control want to issue draft permits to expand the dump. Tell USEPA and California EPA: Stop Dumping Hazardous Wastes in Kettleman City!
> EMAIL the US EPA and the California EPA/Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to demand they deny permits to expand the Chemical Waste Management hazardous waste landfill in Kettleman City due to the chronic violations by the company, the ongoing health crisis including birth defects, miscarriages and childhood cancer, and the racial discrimination in the permit process including denying Spanish-speakers equal opportunity to participate in the process and the use of police dogs and police intimidation in the public hearings.
