Final Push to Protect Bristol Bay

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has just released the proposed determination of its intent to protect Bristol Bay. As part of EPA’s decision process, it has also launched a final comment period. This comment period is the final, critical step. Before September 19, 2014, the EPA needs to hear that people across America support protections for wild salmon.

Take action now by commenting on the proposed Bristol Bay 404(c) determination. Ask EPA to complete the Clean Water Act 404(c) process and protect Bristol Bay’s wild salmon, jobs and communities today.
