We are celebrating our biggest victory for clean water in more than a decade!
In May, on the banks of the Anacostia River in Washington, DC, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy and Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jo-Ellen Darcy signed the final Clean Water Rule. With this historic action, the Obama administration is protecting the drinking water sources for one and three Americans. Thank the President for protecting your water!
Big Polluters and their Dirty Water Allies in Congress are trying to block progress on closing polluter loopholes in the Clean Water Act. Contact Congress today and tell them you want them to stand up for your right to clean water!
Thanks to hundreds of thousands clean water supporters, the decade-long campaign to restore protections for wetlands and streams is nearing the finish line. The Obama administration will soon finish a new Clean Water Rule to close these polluter loopholes and ensure that the drinking water sources for 1 and 3 Americans are better protected from pollution and development. Polluters and their Dirty Water allies in Congress must not be allowed to stop or delay this long overdue progress for our water.
Tell Congress you want them to protect our nation’s vital water resources. If polluters are successful at blocking the Clean Water Rule, over 60% of our nation’s streams will remain vulnerable to pollution and development.
UPDATE: This bill was passed in the Senate. Take action today to tell the House to vote No!
No state in the country has more potential for wind and solar energy production than Texas. We already lead the nation in wind, and solar is expanding rapidly. Wind and solar energy helps us conserve water in Texas because they do not require the vast amounts of water that conventional forms of energy production demand. Don’t let the State Legislature move us backward!
Last year's chemical spill into the Elk River in West Virginia, coal ash spill in the Dan River near Danville, and train derailment into the James River in Lynchburg prove that accidents happen. The risks posed by toxics jeopardize the quality of our water sources and our health.
Two pending bills, SB 771 and 1071, would make it easier to identify hazardous waste sites in Virginia and strengthen state's ability to protect your water and other valuable resources.
