Protect America's water!

Over 40 years ago, two-thirds of America's lakes, rivers, and coastal waters were unsafe for fishing and swimming. Because of the Clean Water Act, that number has been cut in half. However, one-third of the nation’s waters are still in trouble.

The Obama administration has proposed a new rule to clarify which wetlands and streams in the U.S. are covered under the Clean Water Act.

This proposal will finally restore protections, as originally intended, to almost all of the nation's fresh waters -- ensuring safe drinking water for 117 million Americans.

This is great news, but some polluters are actively working to stop the restoration of our nation's clean water protections.
