Ahead of the announcement, BlueGreen Alliance Executive Director Jason Walsh released the following statement:

“Too many Americans live with uncertainty about the safety of the water they drink and the quality of the water their communities depend on for jobs and recreation. Today’s action by the Trump administration is a slap in the face to the millions of Americans whose water is threatened by this rollback.”
