Statement of Waterkeepers & Fishermen on Anticipated WA State Fish Announcement

The Governor has announced that he will present a “path forward” on Washington’s fish consumption standard and development of human health water quality criteria on July 9, 2014.

Earthjustice, representing the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, Columbia Riverkeeper, Spokane Riverkeeper, North Sound Baykeeper, and the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations, sued the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in October 2013 to enforce EPA’s obligation to step in with protective standards where the state has failed to do so.
The groups have been engaged for years in advocacy to hold the state accountable to Clean Water Act requirements for the state to set adequately protective standards. The EPA has been telling the state of Washington for years that its standards are inadequate and fail to protect Washingtonians from toxic pollution.

Challenging California’s Approval of Bee-Killing Pesticides

Environmental and food safety groups, represented by Earthjustice, are challenging California’s illegal practice of approving new agricultural uses for neonicotinoid pesticides, despite mounting evidence that the pesticides are devastating honeybees.

Our mountains, rivers and wildlife belong to all and so too must the power of justice belong to all those who desire to protect our nation's natural treasures. Working together, we will continue holding accountable those who would harm the environment and our communities, and we will continue to ensure that the earth has a good lawyer. Join our fight.Trip Van NoppenPresident, Earthjustice
