Keep raw sewage out of New York City’s waterways!

Photo credit: River Keepers
On one out of every four days, raw sewage over flows in New York. According to the NRDC, as little as one tenth of an inch of rain will overwhelm the city’s sewers and sewage treatment plants.

The NRDC is leading efforts to insure the safety of New York City’s waters by reducing sewage and pollution runoff and to enforce the provisions of the federal Clean Water Act. Sign the petition to Mayor de Blasio and city leaders to keep sewage out of NYC waterways. Please note that we can add our own messages about how overdevelopment exacerbates these problems. Thank you for lending your voice!

Sign Our Petition – This Land is Our Land – Public Land for Public Use

LIC Coalition started this petition to City Elected Officials. This petition has been modified to address our serious need for school seats and a recreation center in addition to the proposed climate change wetlands park. We need your help to both sign this and then share this to get your friends and neighbors to sign it too.
