Protect the Clean Water Rule

User-added image

Everyone deserves clean water. Period. And yet the Trump Administration, led by Scott Pruitt at EPA, are trying to repeal clean water protections for one in three Americans.

In 2015, the EPA passed its Clean Water Rule, which protected streams, wetlands, and other water sources that provide water for 117 million Americans. This commonsense clarification helped protect upstream sources of water that had been largely unprotected and was the result of over 400 community hearings and 1200 peer-reviewed scientific studies. 

But now the Trump Administration is trying to repeal this rule in a giant giveaway to polluters. At a time when we should be focusing on protecting water quality for Americans, this puts too many, especially rural communities that depend on well water, at risk.
