October 1 - EPA Region X attacks EMF FACTS
Region X EPA recently sent out a misleading two-page document to deliberatrely confuse the public regarding issues surrounding the cleanup, Cataldo Mission, and other points delineated in SVCRC 2009 and 2010 EMF Fact Sheets.
You can read both our FACT SHEETS on this web site as they are linked from this page.
You can read our response to the misleading EPA promo on our facebook page.
If you do not have the EPA promo we can send it to you if you request it from us.
Thank you to everyone who has taken time to make Lisa Jackson Call In Day a Success.
"People in the Silver Valley can be proud of their action and (for) fighting back". Doris Cellarius, Sierra Club.
Lisa Jackson Call In - Join SVCRC in the fight for environmental justice. Pledge to call Lisa Jackson and for an immediate moratorium at Cataldo Mission. More information here and here
Keep the messages rolling in whenever you think of what EPA should be doing.

EPA Extends Comment Period to November 23 -
VICTORY!! for the affected citizens of the Bunker Hill Superfund site.
Take back our community, speak out, stop the Old Mission Repository. Repositories are temporary waste sites, EPA has the technology to deal with the hazardous waste with permanent disposal, the Silver Valley Community Resource Center has has asked Region X to consider permanent waste disposal more than 20 different times over the years. EPA refuses to consider this very important consideration to protect future downstream damages and the health of our children and communties. Permanent waste disposal will NOT cost the cleanup jobs that were acquired as a grassroots action of SVCRC and EPA.
