Action Alert: Hold West Virginia's DEP accountable!

May 3, 2011

The Department of Environmental Protection is going to be audited by the WV legislature during the interim legislative session this year. Our legislature has a duty to ensure that DEP is actually doing its job.Audits of DEP only happen every 7 years, and this is a chance to investigate particular programs of DEP where they are failing to comply with or enforce existing law. Take Action! Ask your state legislators to ensure that concerns about how DEP issues and enforces mining permits are included in the audit
