It's Time to Advocate for the Clean Water Rule

In February 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was ordered by President Trump to begin the process of repealing the Clean Water Rule which defines which wetlands and waterways are protected under the Clean Water Act.

The Clean Water Rule, finalized in 2015, is based on more than 1,200 publications of peer-reviewed science and was reviewed by the EPA's Science Advisory Board. It protects small streams and wetlands because science tells us that they are connected to and have a strong influence on the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of downstream waterways such as rivers.
