Access to clean, affordable water is essential to building a more equitable America, where all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. The recent crisis in Flint, Michigan shone a spotlight on water challenges and environmental injustice that disproportionately affect low-income communities and communities of color. But sadly, Flint is only among many such examples. More than 1.3 million Americans don’t have running water at home, and many don’t have access to clean water at all. At the same time, the nation’s water infrastructure is in desperate need of repair, and strategic investments in this sector have the potential to bring good jobs and pathways toward economic mobility to communities hit hardest by water stress. PolicyLink is proud and excited to join Clean Water Action in the fight for smart, equitable policies that will ensure that all communities have safe, reliable, affordable water and wastewater systems.

One of our biggest challenges in this new political climate is being unsure which clean water threats we will encounter form month to month. This is why it is important to be proactive and engage the public on state and local issues through the Clean Water for All campaign. We as a community are stronger when we pull our knowledge and resources together to accomplish our common goal, protecting water.

Clean water is the backbone of healthy communities and a healthy economy. We often take water for granted because of our success at protecting water over the past 45 years. Unfortunately, the job isn’t complete. There are communities facing infrastructure crises that impact access to clean water, pollution from fossil fuel development and power generation, and attacks on commonsense safeguards from members of Congress and the current administration. That’s why we’re proud to be a part of this campaign – joining together to protect clean water now and for the future.

Healthy rivers and clean water are essential to each and every American. The health of our families, the strength of our economy, and the resilience of our communities all depend on safe, reliable and equitable clean water supplies. American Rivers is proud to be part of this campaign. Together, we are making positive impacts today, and we will leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.

Bob Irvin

President & CEO, American Rivers

For decades, the United States has made great strides toward ensuring greater water protections that protect access to clean drinking water for over 117 million Americans. The Trump administration’s latest attempts to rollback the Clean Water Rule seriously undermine these efforts and put the environmental health of our communities at risk. Despite the administration blatant neglect of public health, we will continue to engage our communities and fight for federal action to protect access to clean water for all.
