Act Now

PA Waterway

Pennsylvania’s waters are an invaluable resource for drinking water, recreation and habitat for aquatic life. Yet the Pennsylvania General Assembly recently passed a bill that put them at greater risk from pollution. Email Governor Wolf today and tell him to veto SB 790.

Though Clean Water Action has been encouraged by bipartisan efforts to pass coronavirus relief and a law banning certain trichloroethylene (TCE) uses, there are many other public health priorities that were left unfinished by the Minnesota Legislature during the 2019-2020 session.  In particular, several strong bills were introduced to reduce public exposure to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and lead.

Now’s the time to raise your voice on key restrictions on toxic PFAS chemicals in Virginia. Urge legislators to pledge their support for these toxic pollution prevention priorities this session:

    In light of the current public health crisis, access to clean water and sanitation services for the health and safety of our communities should be the top priority. Water shut-offs in Detroit and across Michigan pose a serious public health risk. Urge your Michigan lawmakers and the leaders of the House and Senate to pass a moratorium against water shutoffs to protect Michiganders during this pandemic.

    The Michigan Public Service Commission is currently accepting comments on Enbridge’s request to relocate Line 5 in a tunnel beneath the Straits of Mackinac. If we really want to protect our Great Lakes, there is simply no way to allow an oil tunnel to be built through one of the most ecologically sensitive parts of the Great Lakes ecosystem.

    This year, the Maryland General Assembly voted to pass a ban on chlorpyrifos in Maryland, but Governor Hogan vetoed the bill. Hogan's decision hurts public health at a time when our farm workers, especially, are already incredibly vulnerable. Send your representatives a message today: override Hogan's veto and protect public health.
