Clean Water Clear Air … actions we must take now

 Did you read how many wells are contaminated with toxins from runoff?
 
Let’s make sure this doesn’t happen again!

Dear eeSGroup,

It’s pretty simple: our water should not be used as dumping grounds for polluters.

The White House has been working to make sure that our wetlands and small streams finally get the strong protection they need.  Let the Administration know you support these strong clean water policies. Ask them to finalize the proposal to close loopholes in the Clean Water Act now!

Many small streams and wetlands are currently vulnerable to pollution and destruction because of policy decisions made by the last Administration, after confusing Supreme Court rulings.  Last year the Obama Administration proposed to fix this problem.  But powerful special interests oppose these common sense updates and are attempting to delay this vital work. Clean Water Action members like you can make sure the President continues to move forward to protect streams, wetlands and other water threatened by polluters.

These streams and wetlands aren’t just geographical features.  They provide drinking water for over 117 million people, serve as critical habitat for fish and wildlife, protect us against floods, and filter pollution.  They are vital parts of our water infrastructure and need to be protected by the Clean Water Act.  You can ensure this happens by joining thousands of Americans who are telling the President that we support his efforts.

Before the distraction of an election season takes over, we need your help to show President Obama that we agree with him that clean water is the foundation of healthy economies and healthy communities. Let’s remind him that our nation’s clean water progress needs to continue!

Please take action today!

-Jennifer
