The Water Polluter Loophole

The Dirty Water Rule

The Trump administration proposed its Dirty Water Rule on December 11, 2018. If finalized, it would wipe out Clean Water Act protections for at least 18 percent of the nation’s streams and at least 51% of all wetlands across the country.

The comment period for the Dirty Water Rule closed on April 15, 2019. The Clean Water for All Coalition mobilized more than 525,000 Americans to comment in opposition to the Dirty Water Rule.

Who's With Us

Voices for clean water
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.

CEO, PolicyLink

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. Chante Coleman

Director, Choose Clean Water Coalition

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. Brent Wilkes

CEO, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)
