Proposed Changes to Pollution Limits of Toxic Substances. By Geniusofdespair

More Florida citizens might develop cancer with these new exposure limits, using a carcinogenic "Chemical Risk Calculation" that is 10 times (or sometimes 100 times) higher than the current rule allows. - Rachel Silverstein, Miami Water Keeper

Dear Secretary Stevenson - Florida DEP - July 21st

1 comment:


Excellent points made in a well-presented letter. DEP should forward their nominations for Environment and Local Government participants to Gov Scott immediately, and the public engagement as required by law should be adequately solicited only after the missing seats are filled. This is statistical maneuvering to weaken protections for our waters and our health, and is of such public importance that anything other than full citizen engagement and participation in the making of these decisions is unacceptable.
