Stop the Continued Attacks on the Clean Water Act
Location: Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Washington D.C.
The Potomac is the "nation's river," rich in culture and history and the lifeblood of our nation’s capital. The river provides drinking water to more than five million people and offers abundant opportunities for recreation. However, the Potomac is threatened by agricultural and urban pollution that will only get worse if Congress rolls back national clean water protections. If Congress puts polluters before people, our nation’s river – and many other rivers nationwide – will become a threat to public health, unsafe for drinking water, wildlife, or recreation.
Take Action to Protect Our Nation's River
Congress must stop the ongoing attempts to weaken the Clean Water Act or prevent the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from restoring protections for small streams and wetlands under the Act. Urge Congress to save the Clean Water Act. Take Action »
