On July 16, 2014, Clean Water Action joined Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell and Environment Texas in supporting
the U.S. EPA's proposal to guarantee federal protections for headwater streams and wetlands that form part of our drinking water supply. The occasion was a visit from Ellen Gilinksy, EPA Senior Advisor for Water, who is meeting stakeholders in Texas to discuss the proposed rule. The proposal will protect all of our drinking water sources, including smaller headwater streams and wetlands that run dry during drought, as the Clean Water Act intended.
Clean Water Action thanks Mayor Lee Leffingwell for taking a stand to #ProtectCleanWater and the drinking water supplies for 117 million Americans, including 11.5 million in Texas.
