Clean Water

Polluter lawsuits are trying to effectively repeal the Clean Water Act for up to 60 percent of the nation's streams, creeks, and rivers. In light of recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions and administrative actions that are jeopardizing federal water pollution protections, Congress is considering the Clean Water Protection Act to reaffirm Congress' intent to protect all waters of the United States.
