Action Alerts:

Information about the Grady Road Project continues to unfold. Thank you to all who gave public comments to NC DEQ regarding this project. We will update as necessary with further actions on this issue.
“The proposed Align/Grady Road Biogas being forced on the citizens of North Carolina by Smithfield Foods and Dominion Energy is NOT a sustainable, renewable energy source. It is nothing more than a method to perpetuate the use of an antiquated waste management system that harms the environment and the neighbors who will have to continue to suffer the stench of hog farms. The only ones to benefit will be Smithfield Foods and Dominion Energy. We DO NOT need this in North Carolina.” -Larry Baldwin, Waterkeeper.

Our communities and environment deserve more protections against waste pollution from the poultry industry. Act now to ask your House Representative to support including the provisions of H 913 in the House version of the state budget. The legislation would require poultry facilities over a certain size to digitally submit the nutrient utilization plans they’re already required to develop to the NC Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ).

The Clean Water Act requires states to review their water quality standards and classifications every three years and make any necessary modifications to ensure protection of our waters. During this process, called the Triennial Review, North Carolina’s Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) reviews current EPA guidelines, scientific data, and public comments and will make recommendations for changes to standards to the NC Environmental Management Commission (EMC). The Triennial Review is currently underway, and now is our opportunity to let our state agencies and decision-makers know that North Carolinians deserve stronger water quality protections.
