The page wasn't there, so I went to NRDC "action center" and did other actions....of particular passion for me: "save the bees", and "restore appalachians by ending mountaintop removal mining and restoring the wetland disters this mining has wrought upon the ecosystem".

If you want clean water, look in the mirror. People are fertilizing their lawns 3-4 times a year, living two miles from the Mississippi. The folks in the Gulf have been violated enough without drinking lawn fertilizer from upstream. There should be a high tax on lawn fertilizer, fingernail polish and all other hazardous wastes.

ULS - use less stuff--e.g., laundry detergent, toothpaste. Fabric softener is totally unnecessary. Think about what you buy, and how it will affect the abused environment.

We are all connected to each other and everything we do affects ourselves and each other.
And, we all do the best we can based on inheritance, experience, class, income, energy level, etc.
May we all be kind to each other.
Blessed be.

I want congress to clean up OUR water!
Most city filtration plants can't afford a system good enough to get medication residue out of our water you're basically ingesting your neighbor's high blood pressure medication whether you need it or not!

What's just as sad is there are actual, working, and effective bioremediation options using enzymes, bacteria, fungi, microbes etc, that don't get any airtime in the mainstream media. We're probably going to end up with mass adoption of a chemical or mecahnical process that is energy-intensive, environmentally unfriendly, and PATENTABLE.

We can live without food for a much longer time then you can live without water. No safe water, many lives lost! It is the govrnmen's responsibility to their citizens to keep the water as safe as possible.

Tell the Congress......Yes..BUT if we all continue to POISON the water ourselves and spend so much........i don't know if it results. Why so much lawns that waste so much water why not other more adjusted plants?
Why so many pesticides,herbicides,fertilizers ? So many litter in the rivers and the seas?
We all in all countries are to blame! I think is time to do things right!

It is of all importance to note that developed countries use fuoride in water, and that continues to carry desastrous long term consequences to plenty tap water drinkers. This type of procedures is something Not To Happen in developing countries, as for disregards..
