Save the Clean Water Act

The current administration is proposing eliminating Clean Water Act protections for waters—and communities—across the country by removing historically protected rivers, streams, lakes, wetlands and other waterways from its “waters of the United States” definition.

Save the Clean Water Act

In 1972 Congress passed the Clean Water Act—a monumental law that provides safeguards to “waters of the United States” (WOTUS). The current administration wants to change the definition of WOTUS to reduce the scope of what’s protected. This would threaten our nation’s drinking water, wildlife and recreation. Organizations like Waterkeeper Alliance are speaking out to defend the Clean Water Act and protect our waterways. Join the fight and comment now against the current administration’s proposed revisions.
