Showing Support for the Clean Water Rule

Voices from all across the United States are standing up for the protection of clean water. Check out what folks are saying this week about the importance of clean and safe water in their lives.

Cotton underappreciates miracle of water – Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette – 11/16

“I’m just a retiree, but even I see enough of the world news, and even the news inside our own country, to know a generous miracle when I see one. Federal and state water quality protection laws support the miracle.”

Protect Clean water, protect our economy – Helena Independent Record, 11/16

“We’re concerned about the attacks because our businesses, our employees and the taxes we generate depend on clean water. Yet opponents of the rule are ignoring our contributions. Each year nearly $4 billion new dollars come into the Montana economy from visitors to our state. According to Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks, angling annually generates $907 million for our economy, much of it from nonresidents.”

For clean water: Don’t ignore science or public – Arkansas Online, 11/14

“Nothing is more fundamental than clean water. In Arkansas, 941,225 people–almost a third of Arkansans–receive their drinking water from streams covered by a new Environmental Protection Agency rule. Outdoor recreation is a large part of Arkansas’ economy. According to a 2006 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service survey, $2 billion is spent in the state annually on hunting and fishing alone. The delay of clean-water protection jeopardizes one of the largest sources of small-business jobs in the state.”

Casey: Don’t throw out EPA’s Clean Water Rule – The Roanoke Times, 11/13

“Public safety should not be a partisan issue, but a goal for both Republicans and Democrats. The Clean Water Rule is not an effort to limit the freedom of Virginia’s constituents, but to ensure that there is healthy water available while they work.”

 

NYU must stand with the Clean Water Rule – Washington Square News, 11/9

“NYU is well-known for the progressive views of its student body and the willingness of those students to take action on the issues that truly matter to them. Put simply, clean water needs to be one of these issues.”
