Clean Water at the People's Climate March

400,000!

Clean Water joined the more than 400,000 people who marched in New York on September 21st. Dozens of staff, Board members, and members came to New York by bus, train, plane, car...and ferry.

It was an amazing day and, in the words of Bob Wendelgass, "the start of something big". Throughout the week staff will be reflecting on the March and talking about what we can all do to keep the momentum going.

One Step Closer to Protecting All Water

A long overdue proposal to protect most streams and wetlands, released by the Obama administration in March 2014, will ensure that the drinking water for nearly one third of all Americans is no longer at risk of pollution.  Make sure your voice is heard today! President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency need to know that you want to protect our water!

Click here to speak your mind and submit a comment to EPA now.

It’s pretty simple - all water is connected. Even kids understand that. The health of our rivers, lakes, and bays depend on the streams and wetlands that flow into them. The health of our nation’s rivers, lakes, and bays depends on the network of small streams and wetlands that flow into them.  Tell EPA and the Army Corps that you support the proposal to #ProtectCleanWater today.

You + Me + Congress = Action on Climate and Energy Legislation!

Both issues are related to critical questions about how we will take care of our public health and our economy in the coming decades. Over the past month, 6 Senate committees have held hearings and action is expected after Congress returns from recess in September.
