Do you want to drink Atrazine daily for the rest of your life? If not, please go submit an official comment to the USEPA before their call for comments ends on October 5th.

Background:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) recently released a 520-page document entitled "Refined Ecological Risk Assessment For Atrazine".

For the first time in its history, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has released a document that details extensive ecological harm caused by Atrazine, one of the world's most commonly used herbicides. In their 520-page report entitled "Refined Ecological Risk Assessment For Atrazine”, the USEPA in their own words:

“presents the ecological risks posed by the use of the herbicide atrazine. Based on the results from hundreds of toxicity studies on the effects of atrazine on plants and animals, over 20 years of surface water monitoring data, and higher tier aquatic exposure models, this risk assessment concludes that aquatic plant communities are impacted in many areas where atrazine use is heaviest, and there is potential chronic risk to fish, amphibians, and aquatic invertebrates in these same locations…EPA levels of concern for chronic risk are exceeded by as much as 22, 198, and 62 times for birds, mammals, and fish, respectively.”

Do you support the use of pesticides that present potential chronic risk for amphibians? Are you disturbed that the USEPA found levels of chronic concern for mammals were exceeded by as much as 198 times? We are mammals, so I'm sure you are at least slightly disturbed, given that Atrazine is the most commonly detected pesticide in U.S. groundwater, rainwater and tapwater, and the USDA detected atrazine in 94% of American tap water samples.

Take Action Today:
P
lease go submit an official comment to the USEPA before the October 5th due date.

Testimonials

"Hi Kerry, thank you so much for a great summer. I also wanted to thank you again for taking extra time to speak with me regarding my environmental goals. Since speaking with you, I have a much clearer trajectory forward and know the next steps I need to take. I cannot thank you enough! Speaking of which, I had an extremely productive and helpful talk with Shannon Curtis (former SAVE THE FROGS! Board Member) this morning. He had a lot of really great thoughts regarding working with the County in one of its environmental departments, and I also really enjoyed talking stormwater with him since that's been a big interest of mine. Best wishes."
