Clean Water is working to protect clean water and restore safeguards for our nation's wetlands and streams that feed our drinking water sources, filter pollution and protect communities from flooding.
Clean Water Action’s Putting Drinking Water First approach means making drinking water impacts a primary consideration when developing regulations and other programs involving upstream activities that could negatively impact downstream drinking water sources. The EPA/Corps Clean Water Rule better protects tributaries that impact the health of downstream waters, include drinking water sources: The Clean Water Rule has concrete implications for source water protection and for drinking water quality.
Clean Water Action: Trump’s budget is more of the same, still the worst President ever for our water and health
"Trump’s budget proposal is like the rest of his administration -- bad news for our water, for our climate, and for our communities "
"The only people who support this outrageous repeal are the corporate polluters who stand to benefit from making it easier to contaminate streams or to fill in wetlands, while burdening communities downstream with their pollution," said Jennifer Peters, National Water Programs director for Clean Water Action. "Americans understand the importance of clean water and expect our government officials to do more, not less, to protect it. We're going to fight this scheme, along with the rest of the Trump administration's dirty water agenda."
