What’s at Stake at the Supreme Court?
On October 3, the United States Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case called “Sackett v. EPA”, which will determine which waters can and cannot be protected by the Clean Water Act. If the polluting industries and special interests get what they’ve asked for in the case, it would severely undermine the law by eliminating long-standing safeguards for wetlands that help protect our communities from flooding and streams that supply our drinking water.
