BlueGreen Alliance Supports Clean Water Rule in Comment to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
We need to put the health of our residents and our economy first. The EPA should keep the Clean Water Rule in place to protect bodies of water that help drive our local economies and supply our children and families with clean, safe drinking water.
The BlueGreen Alliance, a coalition of the nation’s largest labor unions and environmental organizations collectively representing millions of members and supporters, urged the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to withdraw its proposal to revoke crucial protections for bodies of water laid out in the Clean Water Act of 1972 (CWA). Protecting our waters, the most sacred of our natural resources, is simply common sense. The proposed rule rolls back protections for our waters and upends the progress we’ve made as a nation in cleaning up our waterways for drinking, recreating, and other uses.
