Protect Clean Water!

Small streams and wetlands help maintain and protect drinking water supplies, as well as provide critical flood water storage.

The Environmental Protection Agency and the US Army Corps of Engineers recently issued “guidance” that further muddies the waters and confuses the issue even more as to which waters are covered under the Clean Water Act.

Ask your Representative help clarify its intent and live up to its responsibility to ensure that all communities have safe and healthy waters by passing The Clean Water Restoration Act!
