ACTION ALERT! Please call Governor Cuomo 877-235-6537
Tell Governor Cuomo to Ban Spreading Oil & Gas Waste on Roads in New York!
Winter warning! New Yorkers could be driving on toxic, radioactive oil & gas waste. An analysis released in December 2020 showed that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation allows the spreading of oil & gas industry waste on roads for deicing and dust suppression. This toxic waste can contain hundreds of carcinogenic chemicals such as benzene, heavy metals and radioactive contaminants. There have been 119 approvals for road spreading issued by the DEC in Central and Western New York, threatening our water, health, and environment.
