Don't Let Trump Dismantle the Clean Water Act

Hi. I am an 8th grader from California, and through this petition, I will speak out against fracking, pollution, agricultural runoff, and coal waste products that are contaminating our most basic need that we cannot live without.
Since the new administration, there have been many rollbacks on climate regulations. From the repeal of the Clean Power Plan to the lowering the MPG restrictions to decreasing regulations on power plants, the environment is deteriorating very fast. Out of all these regulations, one has been protecting 150 million Americans for more than 40 years, the Clean Water Act. This act protects all rivers, lakes, ponds, and groundwater in the United States.
The Clean Water Act states that "It is the policy of the Congress to recognize, preserve, and protect the primary responsibilities and rights of States to prevent, reduce, and eliminate pollution." This protects not only the people of America but also its ecosystems, its animals, and its agriculture.
Abolishing this regulation would violate the rights of 150 million people. We cannot let this happen, and this petition is asking Congress and the Supreme court to not let Donald Trump abolish the Clean Water Act.
Please sign this petition to ensure your rights to clean and safe water and to protect your earth.
