WE ARE NOT ALONE
ACTION: WHAT YOU CAN DO
There are many things local citizens can do... This is not a "done deal", despite what Dominion Cove Point LNG (DCP) and the Calvert County Board of County Commisioners (BOCC) would have you think. (Scroll down for contact information for elected officials and for Letters to the Editor.)
Please educate yourself about the the reality of this project, make your voice
heard, and help to keep us safe and healthy.
What you can do:
A. Attend CCHC meetings: 3rd Tuesday of each month
(Southern Community Center, 20 Appeal Lane. 6:00 - 8:00 pm.)
B. Keep yourself informed! Attend events that inform and educate the public.
C. Allow CCHC to stay in touch with you by email, flyers, phone calls, etc.
D. Read current media articles about DCP, in print and/or online,
including Letters to the Editor.
E. Display yard signs. Stand up and be counted!
F. Record any impacts on your life from DCP-related activities - traffic,
noise, air pollution, lights - whatever the case, write it down! We have
complaint forms available on this site. Keep a Nuisance Diary.
G. Write letters to newspaper editors expressing your concerns. Make
your voice heard! We can help you learn how to do this.
H. Contact your elected officials (see below) by phone, email, fax and
personal visits. Again: Make your voice heard!
I. Sign petitionsto support the health and safety of Calvert County residents.
J. Talk to family and friends- whether here in Calvert County, elsewhere in Maryland, or even outside the state. Tell them what's
happening here, and help them to take action as well. (If they want to learn about groups local to their area, we can help.)
We have many supporters around the country! Some, like us, face direct impacts from Dominion's projects - for example, our neighbors in Garrett County, who've been forced to accept a compressor station in their midst. Or Virginians who face lawsuits from Dominion because they've refused the company access to their private property. And many others across the country are concerned about the impacts on our climate from gas fracking, liquefaction, and exports.
