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 water in their lives.

Clean Water Rule benefits all Pennsylvanians – Pocono Record, 12/5

“Contrary to what you may have heard, not all farmers oppose the Clean Water Rule. Farmers have long supported the fight to protect clean water. And we support the Clean Water Rule. It is long overdue and welcome. As we face increasingly desperate attempts to stop the Rule by a small group of special interests, we call on senators Casey and Toomey to stand with us and protect clean water.”

Encourage Stabenow and Peters to stand up for clean water – Port Huron Times Herald, 12/5

“As the appropriations process comes to a close over the next few weeks, it’s more important than ever that Sens. Stabenow and Peters hear from those who love Michigan’s Great Lakes and its clean water economy. They need your support to continue to stand up for clean water.”

There is no time to waste to ensure water safety – Renton Reporter, 12/5

“We hope the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will stay the course in the fight for more protective water quality standards for everyone who lives in Washington.”

Kudos to senators for Clean Water Rule votes – Cape Gazette, 12/4

“The new Clean Water Rule protects 55 percent of the streams in Delaware, as well as the drinking water for 280,000 Delawareans. Unfortunately, it was recently under attack from a bill proposed by Sen. John Barrasso from Wyoming.”

Arguments against EPA rule don’t hold water – Missoulian, 12/2

“Ultimately, these new clean water safeguards would solidify protections for 110,000 miles of streams here in Montana, and millions of miles of streams and wetlands nationwide.”

Protecting water sources is crucial – Jackson County Chronicle, 12/2

“In order to protect our fishing and sporting legacy, Wisconsin must do everything it can to protect its lakes, rivers and smaller water resources from pollution. The math is simple: more pollution means fewer fish. That’s why the EPA’s new Clean Water Rule is so important.”

Clean water can’t wait – Progress Illinois, 12/1

“Clean water is the cornerstone of life. We need it for drinking, bathing, eating, playing, brewing, and everything in-between. Unfortunately, Illinois’ waterways are in jeopardy now more than ever.”
