Petition for improved air in Lucas County
and in opposition to the U.S. Coking project
We, the people, do hereby petition the City of Oregon, Lucas County, Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, Ohio EPA and U.S. EPA to deny any and all permits for the U.S. Coking Facility.
This facility's permit shows eight million pounds of pollutants will be discharged into the air annually. The coking plant would add to the areas ozone problems and would add to asthma and allergy problems. This permit is being rushed though against the areas air and peoples health. Therefore we urge all public officials to exercise their authority to deny permits for this facility.
Feel free to print and copy this petition. When you are ready to return it (not every line has to be completed), please mail or fax the original to Matt Stanfield, Toledo Division of Environmental Services, 348 South Erie Street, Toledo Ohio 43602, FAX (419) 936-3959; and mail a copy to the City of Oregon, Mayor and Council, 5330 Seaman Rd., Oregon, Ohio 43616.
