Protect the Waters of the U.S.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Army Corps have announced the process of revisiting the 2020 Navigable Water Protection Rule, aka the “Dirty Water Rule,” which was the most severe attack on the Clean Water Act in history. This regulation removed Clean Water Act protections from up to half of the nation’s wetlands and streams.
