ACT NOW TODAY!
TODAY IS THE DEADLINE FOR TCEQ STAFF TO COORDINATE PUBLIC COMMENT ABOUT THE PROPOSED SIP AND AGREED ORDER FOR EXIDE, WHICH ARE DEEPLY FLAWED.
If you are concerned about the shortcomings and flaws in the proposed Agreed Order/SIP that the TCEQ and Exide crafted together that will allow the Exide lead smelter to continue to illegally emit high levels of lead and other toxins into the air, soil and water in the heart of our community, then please make sure to send your comments RIGHT NOW! to the TCEQ before the 5 p.m. deadline TODAY for staff to coordinate public comment!
When you contact the TCEQ, please request that Exideâ€™s toxic lead emissions be reduced to the maximum level achievable â€“ and nothing less!
No community should have to carry the burden of a lead smelterâ€™s known toxic emissions â€“especially when proven technology is readily available to minimize lead and other toxic emissions to very low emission levels.Â
