Tell the EPA: Don’t Delay to Protect Clean Water!

A recent report released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shows that approximately 55% of our rivers and streams are in poor biological condition. Polluted runoff is identified as one of the major sources of pollution to our rivers and streams.

Ask your representatives to tell the EPA not to delay in issuing a rule to update its stormwater programs to better protect clean water.
