Rally for the Rivers Wrap-Up

On Saturday, June 25th, the Cumberland Chapter and others Rallied for the Rivers! 

Citizens from all around the state gathered at 11 events held around the state to show their support for the enforcement of the Clean Water Act.  We are asking the State of Kentucky and the Beshear administration to step up their enforcement and protect our waterways from pollution caused by coal.

Events were held in Paducah, Owensboro, N Kentucky, Louisville, Athens/Winchester, Lexington, Shakertown, Elkhorn Creek, Pikeville Mamouth Cave and Bardstown.

 

Here’s just a sample of some of the great media coverage from the events:
