Dear U.S. PIRG supporter,

I know it may sound crazy, but the Bush administration has actually made a proposal to allow wastewater treatment plants to dump barely treated sewage into American waters whenever it rains. I don't know about you, but I don't want more sewage in my water no matter the weather.

Fortunately, neither do a lot of Members of Congress, and they've banded together to make sure this proposal does not get enacted. This week, Congress is going to vote to stop the Bush administration's proposal from becoming law.

Please take a moment to ask your Member of Congress to keep more sewage out of America's water. Then, if you have friends who don't want more sewage in their water either, forward this email to them and ask them to contact their Member of Congress too.

Sorry Guys, but sewage treatment plants have been doing this for years. Every time there is a deluge and waste water treatment plants can't handle the normal load of sewage as well as the influx of rain in the storm sewer system, it is open the gates and let her go. As bad as this is, it is no where near as bad as the mercury and other metal contaminants released into our creeks, rivers, and lakes by American industry over the last 100 years.
