What
Clean Air Clear Lake, an organization made up primarily of concerned women living in Seabrook near the proposed American Acryl acrylic acid plant, will hold a press conference to protest plans to build a hazardous waste incinerator.

The plant would add another 800,000 pounds of pollutants to the air of Harris County, an area already known as the toxic waste incineration capital of the United States.

When
At 11:00 AM, Tuesday, March 28

Where
The press conference will be held at the Ed White Memorial Youth Center, 1513 Third St. in Seabrook.

Who
Speakers include: Dr. Neil Carman Clean Air Program Director Sierra Club,
LaNell Anderson Grandparents of the Ship Channel,
Tamara Maschino Clean Air Clear Lake, and
Erin Rogers Texas PEER Coordinator.

Why
In the wake of the massive explosion of the nearby Phillips 66 plant, local residents will speak about the dangers of living in the vicinity of 53 industrial polluters not only from explosions but from everyday releases of toxic chemicals into the neighborhoods.

Texas Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (Texas PEER) will present a 4-minute video on the neighborhood battle against Elf Atochem and the Texas Natural Resource Conservation's support of the polluting facilities. The video is the first in a series of 25 and marks the national launching of the Toxic Texas website (www.txpeer.org/toxictour) --a visual tour of Texas's major environmental problems.
