Asian carp pose a serious, urgent threat to the Great Lakes’ ecosystems and economy, including the $7 billion fishing industry. Immediate action is needed to prevent irreparable harm. But, as Asian carp continue toward Lake Michigan, the White House is blocking action to stop them.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has conducted a feasibility study on Brandon Road Lock and Dam, a logical choke point location to install control measures to stop the fish from moving closer to the lake. The study was paid for at taxpayer expense and is ready for public review, but the Administration is preventing its release.
Now, Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle are calling on the Administration to release the study—new protections cannot move forward without it. Stand with them today.
