Dear River Advocate,
If you think your drinking water is protected from pollution, think again. Fundamental safeguards for clean water in our rivers and streams are under attack and need your help today.
Supreme Court decisions on the Clean Water Act have left the fate of 60 percent of the nation’s stream miles in legal limbo. And now, polluters are claiming they don’t need to report what they dump into local streams. Companies that have spilled oil, chemicals and dangerous bacteria into lakes, rivers and other waters are not being prosecuted.
Please send a letter to President Obama now. Tell him to restore the scope of the Clean Water Act to protect our rivers.
Now some Members of Congress are also attacking protections for clean water. Just last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a funding bill that included a provision that would halt the Environmental Protection Agency’s ongoing effort to restore critical Clean Water Act protections for streams, wetlands, and drinking water across the country.
Act now to tell President Obama that protecting clean water in our streams and rivers is a priority.
