Dear Public Officials,

Virginia has a 30-year ban on uranium mining. Foreign-backed interests are trying to lift the ban so they can mine and process uranium, starting in Southside Virginia. Drinking water, human health, farmland, property values, wildlife and tourism across Virginia are at risk.

Radioactive and Toxic Waste: If the ban were lifted, processed uranium would be shipped out of state. Left behind for centuries would be huge volumes of radioactive and toxic waste, disposed near farmlands and local waterways.

Health Risks: Exposure to uranium waste has been linked to increases in leukemia, kidney disease and other severe health problems.

Downstream Impacts: A recent study predicts a spill at the first proposed mining site could contaminate drinking water for up to two years for Virginia Beach and other Virginia and North Carolina communities.

Protect Our Health, Our Heritage, and Our Future. Keep the Ban on Uranium Mining in VA!
