Radioactive Oil Waste Rules

You can help protect eastern Montana from radioactive oil waste!


Eastern Montana landowners have been asking the state of Montana to protect our land, air, and water from unregulated radioactive oilfield waste for years. Finally, the Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has released draft rules to oversee the disposal of radioactive oilfield waste in Montana. This is a big win! But the rules still fall short in major ways.

Will you stand with eastern Montana, and help us strengthen them?

You can edit the draft comments in the box below then enter your contact information and click Submit to send your comments to the DEQ.
