Voices from all across the United States are standing up for the protection of clean water. Read what these residents of Florida, Minnesota, New York, and Pennsylvania are saying this week about the importance of clean and safe water.

Clean Water Act Should Be Updated – Go Erie.com, 10/13

“Water is our most vital resource but we continue to abuse it. The evidence is getting harder to ignore — more frequent killer flash floods, contaminated drinking water and severely polluted water, including Lake Erie, Chesapeake Bay, the Gulf of Mexico and hundreds of thousands of miles of streams and rivers.”

Tighten Rules on Safe Drinking water – Auburn Citizen – 10/11

Save the New Clean Water Rule from its Opponents – Queens Chronicles, 10/9

“In New York City, clean water is the most vital resource we have. We are known to have some the cleanest drinking water in the country for a reason; we value and preserve our waterways. We rely on lakes, rivers and streams for our quality of life, our economy and our health.”

Clean Water Rule Won’t Give EPA All Power – Duluth News Tribune, 10/9

“For 40-plus years, the Clean Water Act has protected our lakes, streams and wetlands — large and small, upstream and downstream. The nation’s waters are better for it.”

Minnesota’s Waters Need EPA’s New Protection – Duluth News Tribune, 10/6

“The rule is the biggest step forward for clean water in a decade. But polluters are working in Congress right now to overturn it. This fall, we’ll need Minnesota’s legislative leaders, in particular Sen. Amy Klobuchar, to support the rule so Minnesotans can continue to enjoy our 10,000 lakes for generations to come.”

Protect Florida’s Water – Miami Herald, 10/5

Whether spending weekends at beaches along the Gulf or visiting Florida’s majestic springs, water has always been central to my life. I’m disheartened that the American Farm Bureau Federation and its allies in Congress don’t share the same appreciation for it.”
