People care deeply about clean water. Our rivers, bays, lakes, and streams are vital to a healthy environment and a vibrant economy, and provide endless opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating, and other recreation. Above all, we need clean, safe drinking water to live.
Americans did not vote in 2016 to undermine basic protections for clean water. Public support for the issue remains high and people are more aware than they have been in years to the notion that safe, clean water is not a given, but very much under threat.
From massive proposed cuts to EPA’s budget, which will make it difficult for the agency to protect clean water, to rollbacks of commonsense safeguards for water and public health, the Administration and Congress seem bent on undoing federal clean water protections.
In the face of these immediate and coming threats to the nation’s waters a broad coalition of environmental, conservation, sportsmen, and community groups is engaging and mobilizing Americans to get involved in the fight to protect clean water.
