Tell the Army Corps – Stop Rubberstamping Destruction of Our Waters!

For more than thirty years, the Clean Water Act has provided critical protections for America’s rivers, streams, wetlands, and other waters. These waters serve as important wildlife habitats, provide protections against flooding, and filter pollutants from our drinking water supply.

Key to this law’s success is that careful environmental assessment and public notice are required before a body of water can be polluted, filled, or destroyed. But right now, the Army Corps of Engineers is trying to undermine these protections, by rubberstamping many destructive projects while waiving environmental review.

We need your help: please tell the Army Corps that Americans value the strong protections of the Clean Water Act and don’t want to see these critical safeguards weakened!
