Defend the Clean Water Rule

On June 27, 2017, the Trump administration officially proposed to dismantle the Clean Water Rule. This would remove protections of the Clean Water Act for half our nation’s streams, which help provide drinking water to 1 in 3 Americans.

The proposal is now officially published in the federal register. Comments must be received on or before August 28, 2017.

Stand together with other local watershed groups nationwide by signing onto this letter to oppose this rollback of protections for our waterways and our drinking water.
