The Clean Water Act - one of our nation’s key pieces of environmental legislation - allows millions of American’s to reclaim our nation’s waterways and make them safe for swimming, drinking, and fishing. Sadly, the Clean Water Act is currently under attack.
A growing chorus of big polluters and their cronies in Congress is working to convince the public that the Clean Water Act is a “job killer” - equating environmental protection with economic disaster. The U.S. House of Representatives has spent this year - ironically, the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act - relentlessly trying to undermine the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and our environmental laws. They are taking direct aim at the Clean Water Act and seeking to strip the federal government’s authority to regulate water quality standards. They even want to weaken the EPA’s power to enforce the law and protect OUR communities!
During this 40th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act, join Waterkeeper Alliance in spreading the message of clean water and healthy communities to Congress and beyond. Clean Water is a basic human right!
Clean Water. Act Now.
