It is Time to Filter Partisanship Out of Our Water


For too long protections for our nation’s water sources have taken a back seat to acrimony and partisanship by policymakers in Washington.

As a result, 55% of our waters in the U.S. are rated in “poor” condition; unfit for swimming, fishing, or drinking, and the Environmental Protection Agency studies show that the problem is just getting worse.

The EPA has proposed a rulemaking that will restore key protections to many of our nation’s water sources by clearly defining what the jurisdiction of the Clean Water Act is.

This “Waters of the U.S.” rulemaking will provide the certainty we need to know that our treasured water resources will be protected from harmful pollution.

Please join us in telling EPA to finalize the “Waters of the U.S.” rulemaking, and end the partisan bickering that has gotten in the way of real protections for our wetlands, streams, rivers, and other treasured water sources.
