With the election of Donald Trump as President, we know we’ll need to defend the Clean Water Act against attacks. Americans didn’t vote for more pollution in their water, no matter how they voted in the election. So we’ll need to come together to fight rollbacks to our bedrock clean water laws. We’ll need to hold a strong line of defense on everything from ensuring that infrastructure investments provide safe drinking water to preserving TMDL’s that keep nutrient pollution in check in order to keep our rivers, lakes, and streams protected.
Having seen first-hand how water pollution affects real people and their communities, Clean Water Network members are the best messengers to make the case for protecting our waterways. That’s why the Clean Water Network is hosting a Fly In event on March 20th and 21st of 2017 to bring members to DC to defend the Clean Water Act and prevent attacks against the policies that keep our waters clean.
Join meetings with decision makers at the federal level like EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers as well as reporters, policy experts or legal experts. Sharpen your advocacy skills with briefings on the top threats to clean water and training from seasoned lobbyists. Strategize with other Clean Water Network members to take coordinated action to protect our local waterways.
