Take Action: Thank the Obama Administration for Restoring Clean Water Protections Take Action: Thank the Obama Administration for Restoring Clean Water Protections

The Obama administration proposed a new rule to clarify which waters of the United States are protected under the Clean Water Act. For years, confusing Supreme Court rulings and agency guidance have left our country's small streams and wetlands at risk of pollution.

The new rule will finally restore protections, as originally intended, to almost all of the nation's fresh waters -- ensuring safe drinking water for 117 million Americans.
