1 in 2 West Virginian’s Drinking Water Could be at Greater Risk for Pollution
Speak Up for Clean Water by Sept. 27
More than half (54%) of all West Virginians could see their drinking water at greater risk for pollution if a repeal of water protections moves forward. The Trump Administration is attempting to throw out decades of sound science and overwhelming public support with their attempt to repeal and replace the Clean Water Rule, the rule that makes sure headwater streams and wetlands receive protection under the Clean Water Act. If the Clean Water Rule is repealed, 117 million Americans will lose important protections for their drinking water.
Send a letter to the EPA letting them know that you oppose any action to repeal the Clean Water Rule! Comments are due Wednesday, September 27, 2017.
West Virginians would be especially vulnerable. 8,390 miles of streams in West Virginia would lose protections and more than 1 in 2 West Virginian’s (54%) would have lessened water security. Those who rely on private wells or whose water systems lack the resources to deal with polluted sources, may be hit the hardest by the roll back.
Take action! Send a letter to the EPA letting them know you oppose any action to repeal the Clean Water Rule! Comments are due September 27, 2017. Already sent a letter? Forward this email to a friend.
