The Clean Water Act is one of the cornerstones of water protection for the entire country. Now, Trump’s EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is working to undo years of work by removing critical wetlands and streams from the act’s protection. We can’t let this happen.
Wetlands and seasonal streams are some of the most valuable wildlife habitat in the state, providing food and shelter for salmon, birds and a range of other species. They also protect us from floods, filter out polluted runoff and provide clean drinking water to 1 in 3 Americans. Stripping these waters of their Clean Water Act protection goes against solid, reasonable science and would have devastating consequences for humans and wildlife alike.
The EPA is accepting Public Comments until August 28th. Click here to defend streams and wetlands now!
Rolling back water protections is a step backward that we simply cannot afford. This issue will have serious consequences for our local waters, and waters across the country. Take action today, and please help spread the word by sharing this message!
Thank you for all you do,
