Dear Friends of Florida's Waters:

Even as many Floridians are facing toxic algal blooms in nearby waters, the Florida DEP is rushing to get approval before the Florida Environmental Regulation Commission (ERC) for higher levels of carcinogens and toxic chemicals in Florida’s rivers and estuaries.

On July 26, the ERC will vote on whether to approve or disapprove DEP’s proposed criteria for 89 known carcinogens and/or human health-based toxic chemicals that are dumped into Florida waters by industry and other surface water dischargers. Floridians will get weaker protection from almost two dozen carcinogens if the ERC approves DEP’s proposal.  Essentially all of the chemicals would be allowed in our drinking water supplies, shellfishing areas, swimming and fishing waters at significantly higher amounts than EPA recommends.

The time to speak out against this is NOW!!! Here’s what you can do to help us stop our state government from poisoning us for the benefit of corporate polluters:

1.  Attend the meeting in Tallahassee on the 26th at 8:30 am - DEP Bldg., Commonwealth Blvd.
2.  Write to the ERC members and tell them not to poison us with these chemicals.  Here’s their contact info:
