In part because of 2020 member actions last June, the EPA has issued new regulations that close loopholes in the Clean Water Act. These loopholes leave nearly 2 million miles of our country's streams and the drinking water for 117 million Americans vulnerable to pollution. The House of Representatives recently passed legislation to block these new EPA regulations–but without enough votes to overcome an expected Presidential veto. Now the Senate is also being lobbied intensively to block these new protections. To ensure that our nation’s drinking water and more of our waterways are protected, help us keep the Senate from turning back these new EPA Clean Water Act regulations.
Will the Senate cater to the oil, gas, coal, developer, and agribusiness lobbies that want to move backward on clean water? Or will it restore Clean Water Act protections to nearly 2 million miles of our nation's streams? We're on the verge of a big victory, but your action is needed to protect the waters we love. Contact your Senators and urge
them to support the revised EPA clean water regulations.
