Restore the Clean Water Act: Take Action to Prevent Water Pollution, Reduce Flooding and Protect Habitat

Which waters are worth protecting? The answer is fundamental to safeguarding America’s creeks, brooks, streams and wetlands. 

The Clean Water Act was designed to protect our water – from the Mighty Mississippi to your neighborhood creek – but rollbacks over the past decade have eroded the law, leaving the drinking water sources for over 100 million people unprotected. Creeks, brooks and streams make up more than half the river-miles in the nation and flow into larger waterways like rivers and lakes. They also provide vital services, like filtering pollution, reducing the risk of flooding and providing important wildlife habitat.

The U.S. EPA and Army Corps of Engineers have proposed updated standards for determining which waters deserve protection under the Clean Water Act. If adopted, the “new” standard would restore the Clean Water Act to its original intent.  You can help ensure this new standard is adopted by submitting a public comment.
