Alcoa Worldwide Pollution: A Detailed History of Toxic Operations
Literature provided to Yadkin Riverkeeper by Alcoa falsely states: "Alcoa has a proven track record as a good environmental steward. Alcoa takes its environmental responsibility seriously and has earned an outstanding reputation locally, nationally and globally for its commitment to protecting the environment."

Alcoa, by its own admission, has polluted the Badin Lake area in North Carolina. They are now applying to lease the rights to the water for another 50 years but have not agreed to clean up the area. Please express your concern to Governor Bev Perdue.
