Only 2 Days Left to Comment on the Clean Water Act

The Clean Water Act is our most powerful tool for conserving aquatic habitat for fish and wildlife – but without immediate action by sportsmen, these important areas could be in jeopardy.

The act was written at a time when lakes and rivers served as dumping grounds for toxic wastes and flammable chemicals. Since then, we have made immense progress nationwide toward cleaning up our waters, restoring fish and wildlife habitat, protecting drinking water sources, combatting wetland loss and growing a $200 billion per year sportsmen’s economy that runs on clean water.

However, Clean Water Act protections for wetlands and headwater streams have been at risk following a pair of Supreme Court cases in the 2000s. In fact, the rate of wetlands loss accelerated by 140 percent from 2004 to 2009, the years immediately after the Supreme Court rulings. Now the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Environmental Protection Agency are taking steps to clarify the Clean Water Act, finally restoring some of these safeguards.

Sportsmen must speak up for strong, science-based protections for waters upon which America’s hunters and anglers rely.

Tell Congress, the Army Corps and EPA you support efforts to clarify the Clean Water Act and urge them to finalize a rule that protects wetlands and headwater streams.
