Help Us Show Support Clean Water, Healthy Rivers


Join us on Tuesday, May 13th from 1:00-2:00pm EST for a Twitter chat with clean water experts from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to learn more about the recently proposed Clean Water rule. This proposed rule is an important step forward to clarify protections under the Clean Water Act for small streams and wetlands which were put into question following two Supreme Court cases in 2001 and 2006.
