Take Action: Protect Clean Water in the US

You like clean water, right? Of course you do. In the US, most of us are incredibly lucky to have clean water filling our cup from the tap, streaming from our shower head and filling our toilet bowl — not to mention our favorite waterways, lakes and swimming holes where we spend or summers diving and splashing. Well, now it’s time to voice your support of clean water…

Take Action Here.

William K. Reilly was the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency from 1989 to 1993. Earlier this week, he voiced his support in protecting the Clean Water Act in The New York Times:

Next year will mark the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, a milestone for a series of landmark environmental laws that began with the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970. Those actions set our nation on a course to restore our damaged natural resources, but today, because of political pressures and court rulings, the extent and durability of some of those key protections are at risk…

If we narrow our vision of the Clean Water Act, if we buy into the misguided notion that reducing protection of our waters will somehow ignite the economy, we will shortchange our health, environment and economy.

Take Action Here.
