Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund have found large problems with SDWA and how the Act protects drinking water from certain oil and gas and uranium mining activities. A groundbreaking report and a white paper, released in January 2015, explores two SDWA programs - the Aquifer Exemption Program and the Under Injection Control Class II Program.
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.
Take action now and tell EPA you support a full prohibition on unconventional oil and gas wastewater being sent to publicly owned treatment works.
Now is the time to update the the rules to reflect the new environmental threats of modern oil and gas operations. Take action today.
