Tell the EPA to fix the Clean Water Act

Right now more than 59 percent of U.S. streams and 20 million acres of wetlands are vulnerable to toxic dumping and pollution because of some dangerous loopholes in the Clean Water Act. Since these are connected to larger waterways, this puts the drinking water of 117 million Americans at terrible risk and threatens the survival of our wildlife.

Luckily, the Environmental Protection Agency just did an investigation and confirmed what we already knew -- that streams, wetlands, and floodplains are connected to important downstream waters. And they can use this study to fix the Clean Water Act and protect all our waterways.

But they’ll only do it if they hear from you. So use this form to send a message to the EPA now!


Our waterways are connected: listen to science and protect them! Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OA-2013-0582

Dear Administrator McCarthy,

All our waterways should be clean enough to drink from, fish from and swim in without risk of pollution -- from our local rivers and streams, to iconic waters like the Chesapeake Bay and the Great Lakes.
