ACTION: Clean Water
7 years ago
| Action Alerts/Petitions



The Clean Water Act (CWA) is one of our nation’s most important environmental protection laws—helping to ensure that rivers, streams, lakes and bays are protected from pollution regardless of state and regional boarders. It provides a consistent national framework so that polluters cannot simply move upstream to a state with weak regulations, only to send pollution downstream to states with strong water protection laws. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a long history of partnering with states, resulting in dramatic improvements in water quality across the nation. This is all threatened by H.R .2018, the Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act of 2011. If enacted, H.R. 2018 would stop the EPA from carrying out its mandate to protect America’s rivers, streams and waterways under the CWA, reversing years of progress. It would move decision making authority regarding water pollution from the EPA to the states—setting up a patchwork of policies and putting all our waters at risk. H.R. 2018 passed the House by a vote of 239-184. However, the Obama administration has issued a statement of opposition on the bill, noting that the measure would “significantly undermine the Clean Water Act and could adversely affect public health, the economy, and the environment.” Take Action! Urge your U.S. Senators to protect our water and oppose any efforts to remove the EPA’s oversight authority.

Clean Water ACT

Save the Clean Water Act from attack by gas drillers!



Don't let energy companies dictate environmental policy!


As you may have read in the newspapers, Chesapeake Energy Corp. is trying to exercise its political muscle, telling landowners that their gas royalty payments are being delayed because the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is not issuing permits fast enough for Chesapeake.

Chesapeake Energy has proposed hundreds of miles of Marcellus gas pipelines, which would cross Pennsylvania's rivers and streams. Chesapeake is asking 17,000 landowners to write their U.S. representatives to change the Clean Water Act requirements that stream crossings need permits and that extensive pipelines, which can cross hundreds of streams and wetlands, must be reviewed for environmental impact.


We need to tell our Congressmen that our rivers and streams deserve the protection of the Clean Water Act!


The Clean Water Act was designed to protect our rivers and streams from pollution and sediment runoff.


Chesapeake Energy is complaining that Clean Water Act review slows down their pipeline projects. Chesapeake wants to use this delay to blame the Corps of Engineers for bureaucratic meddling and to enlist landowners to change the Clean Water Act.

We must not let that happen. ACT NOW!

Our rivers, lakes, and streams are the lifeblood of our country and need to be protected. The U.S. House has voted to cripple the Clean Water Act, the best defense that America's waters have against the mining industry, developers and other polluters.

Their bill would take the teeth out of the Clean Water Act by stripping the EPA of its powers to hold states accountable for pollution. The result would be a race to the bottom as states compete for polluting industries’ business by slashing their clean water laws, with no federal backstop to keep America’s rivers safe from the ensuing pollution.

Tell your representatives today: Leave the Clean Water Act alone and let the EPA do its job.

Protect Funding for Clean Water

Protect Funding for Clean Water

Water is one of the most basic necessities -- but 900 million people around the globe still struggle to find clean water for themselves and their families. The consequences are dire. Each year, lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills 1.8 million children under the age of five.

Right now, Congress is considering massive funding cuts for foreign aid -- including the programs that provide clean water to the world's poorest and most vulnerable people. These programs make up only a tiny fraction of the federal budget, but they have a lifesaving impact for millions around the world.

Tell Congress that we can't balance the budget by cutting programs that help millions in desperate poverty access the water they need to survive.

As an administration that promised "sound science" when making decisions, you are probably fully aware that oxygen {air} and water are the very basic building blocks of life. Citizens should not be needing to petition the government for Clean Air, or Clean Water.

Recently lost Clean Water Act protections threaten not only fish and wildlife, but the health of Americans: EPA estimates that more than 117 million Americans get their drinking water from public supplies fed in whole or in part by intermittent or ephemeral streams vulnerable to pollution under these decisions.

Take Action! For too long, sewage and fertilizer pollution has been running into rivers, streams, lakes, canals, and coastal waters. Please tell the EPA to enforce strong standards that clean up the pollution causing toxic algae outbreaks.
Take Action! No matter our political views, we all need clean water to live. And since 1972, the bipartisan Clean Water Act has protected our nation’s lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands from unregulated pollution and destruction. Please let the White House know you support efforts to make sure all "waters of the United States" remain protected by the Clean Water Act, as they have been for decades.
Take Action! Florida’s water pollution is a national disgrace and that requires a national response. Tell President Obama that Florida’s state plan to clean up water pollution allows more toxic algae-infested waterways and that a federal solution is required.

Tell the EPA that you support restoring critical protections for our small streams and wetlands

117 Million Americans get their water from small streams


Approximately 117 million Americans rely at least in part upon small streams and wetlands for their drinking water supply. That’s more than one third of the entire population.These streams also provide buffers for absorbing and reducing the impacts of flooding, help recharge groundwater supplies, and retain and filter nutrients that can cause water pollution. [2] So it is critical that protections are restored.

The Clean Water Act is Under Attack

Tell Congress: vote NO on the Regulatory Fairness Act

  Bristol Bay, Alaska

Dear Lisa,

We need your help to protect Bristol Bay and the Clean Water Act from Congress!

This February the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) took a huge step toward saving the world’s largest sockeye salmon fishery in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Using the Clean Water Act, the EPA is on the road to protecting Bristol Bay’s fragile ecosystem from the toxic mine waste threats posed by the Pebble copper/gold mine.

Now some Members of Congress want to stand in the way.

They call their bill the Regulatory Fairness Act of 2014 (HR 524/S 830). Instead of fairness, this bill narrows the important Clean Water Act safeguard EPA just initiated to protect Bristol Bay’s water resources.

Despite overwhelming public support for EPA’s move to protect Bristol Bay, this bill seeks to limit when EPA can act to protect our rivers, lakes, and streams from the toxic waste created by open pit mining. HR 524 and S 830 are part of a broader effort to effectively end EPA’s ability to block harmful projects.

TAKE ACTION: Tell Congress to vote against The Regulatory Fairness Act!

The future of clean water in the United States is in your senator’s hands. The Senate is expected to vote—as soon as this week—on an amendment to a must-pass spending bill that would prevent the administration from restoring long-standing protections of the Clean Water Act to headwater streams and wetlands that provide drinking water to 117 million Americans.

More than 250,000 concerned citizens recently wrote the Environmental Protection Agency in support of its proposed “Waters of the U.S. rule,” which would restore key Clean Water Act protections to more than half of our nation’s streams and waterways. These protections are vitally needed as more than half of our nation’s waters are rated in &ldquooor” condition: unfit for swimming, fishing or drinking; and EPA studies show that the problem is getting worse.

Please take action now and urge your senator to oppose any dirty water amendments that try to stop the administration from finalizing the Waters of the U.S. rule.

Clean water - US only
4 years ago

The Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers publicly released a proposed Clean Water Rule to clarify the scope of the Clean Water Act. There are efforts in Congress to derail this rule. 

Ask your legislators to protect the waters of the United States. 

Clean Water Rule

The Clean Water Rule aims at reducing the uncertainty surrounding protections for small streams and wetlands, which were put into question following two Supreme Court decisions in 2001 and 2006.  This is important because what happens in small streams and wetlands impacts the quality and health of downstream tributaries and larger rivers.

Clarifying the scope of the Clean Water Act is critical to restoring protections for the small streams and wetlands that contribute to our drinking water supplies, filter out pollutants, protect fish, and help to protect us from flooding.

The last thing we want is more pollution cases like these closer to home, so we should be doing all we can to protect our water, right?

Instead, polluters have been allowed to carve loopholes into the Clean Water Act that leave 2 million miles of America's streams open to their wastes.

And when the EPA moved to close the loopholes and enforce the law, the U.S. House voted to block the agency and protect the polluters.

It's outrageous that our elected officials are siding with polluters over clean water. Fortunately, there is something you can do beyond muttering a few choice words under your breath:

Add your name right now to our call to close the clean water loopholes. We need President Obama and the EPA to stare down the polluters and their friends in Congress in this fight.

So our coalition is aiming for a 500,000-person show of support, and we've pledged to deliver 200,000 names. We're almost there, but we can't deliver without you and the deadline is here.

Please stand up for clean water by adding your name right now.

Almost 80,000 friends of wildlife have already spoken out for clean water that otters depend on.

But this week the smallest wetlands and streams, where rivers begin, are under threat. Too many members of Congress are voting in favor of polluters—and could derail the protection of clean water and vital wildlife habitat.

Take action today to urge your members of Congress to protect clean water.

Our water systems are poisoning us.

Tell Congress: Pass The Water Act Now! 

Dear Elizabeth,

Water is a fundamental human right, but due to a deadly combination of structural racism, poor infrastructure and environmental crisis, many go without.

During the Flint water crisis, many of our people were the last to know they were being poisoned by lead in their water. The problem had to become international news and translated into Spanish before mothers and fathers knew the water coming out of their taps was poisoning their children, and that boiling the water only further concentrated the lead.1

This isn’t just happening in Flint. It’s happening everywhere. And while we are frequently among the most vulnerable to these sorts of health crisis caused by environmental injustice, it affects everyone.Thankfully, our communities are coming together to take on the scale of the problem.

Will you join with over a dozen organizations and call on Congress to pass The WATER Act (H.R. 5313)?

By signaling its intent to revoke the Clean Water Rule, the Trump Administration has brazenly put the drinking water of 1 in 3 Americans at risk.

Instituted by the Obama Administration in 2015, the Clean Water Rule extended federal safeguards over smaller headwater streams and wetlands that feed into larger waterways, but whose Clean Water Act jurisdiction was unclear because of conflicting Supreme Court cases.

By putting to rest questions over which bodies of water were protected, the Clean Water Rule guarantees safe drinking water for 117 million -- or 1 in 3 -- Americans. These waterways also filter pollutants, absorb floodwaters, and provide critical habitat for wildlife across the nation.

But in one chilling proposal, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking to scrap the Clean Water Rule, thereby jeopardizing the health and well-being of millions of Americans and causing irreparable damage to the environment.

We have 30 days to send a clear message to the EPA, that we need to strengthen, not weaken safeguards for clean water.

Dear Elizabeth,

In 2015, the Obama administration finalized commonsense protections for streams and wetlands across the country. These safeguards protected the small streams that feed the drinking water sources for nearly 1 in 3 Americans.

They also protected wetlands throughout the nation that filter pollutants from water, absorb floodwaters, and provide habitat for countless wildlife. It was a no-brainer supported by millions of Americans and backed by science. It was a huge victory for our water.

But that is all at risk now. And we have just one week left to protect our water. 

The Trump administration wants to roll back these protections which will put all of those water bodies at risk. We can't let that happen. 

Protecting our water means less pollution from the mining, oil and gas industries. The more streams and headwaters we include in these protections, the more water we can keep clean for future generations.

TAKE ACTION: Tell the EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to protect our water!
