This interactive map shows Alcoa’s pollution worldwide. Each Google Map point contains additional information and video links. If you are aware of pollution in your area as a result of Alcoa’s past or current operations, email us with the pollution site and your source and we will incorporate it into the map.

Alcoa, by its own admission, has polluted the Badin Lake area in North Carolina. They are now applying to lease the rights to the water for another 50 years but have not agreed to clean up the area. Please express your concern to Governor Bev Perdue.
