Keep Our Water Clean and Protected!

For more than 30 years, the Clean Water Act has provided critical protections for our streams, lakes, wetlands, beaches, and other waters we depend on for safe drinking water, habitat for fish and wildlife, and recreation.

But long-standing federal protections for these waters are now in jeopardy. This past June, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a very deeply divided ruling that could open the floodgates to polluters that are taking every opportunity to hack away at laws designed to protect and restore our rivers, lakes, wetlands, and streams.

But Congress has an answer, and now is the time to tell your representatives that they need to reaffirm the objective of the Clean Water Act, and co-sponsor the “Clean Water Authority Restoration Act” today!
