The permit that allows Hilcorp and other oil & gas corporations to dump more than 2 billion gallons of toxic waste into Cook Inlet fisheries each year is out for public comment. An assessment in 2005 found that produced water discharged into Cook Inlet from offshore platforms contained over 32,000 gallons of oil and grease, over 50,000 pounds of zinc and over 440 pounds of arsenic.

Here are the two main points for your comment:
1. Technology has existed for many years for the oil and gas industry to stop toxic dumping in Cook Inlet, and to go to "zero discharge". It's time to do so.

2. The permit should not reduce monitoring requirements and oversight, and specifically, it should not remove toxicity testing.

All fields must be completed unless marked "optional."
