EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is threatening to roll back the Clean Water Rule, finalized in 2015 under the Obama administration.

The Clean Water Rule restores some level of protections to small streams and wetlands that were left vulnerable to pollution following two Supreme Court cases. It clarifies what types of waters are protected under the Clean Water Act.

For waters that flow into the Rogue river, the Clean Water Rule is critical. The science is clear that the health of small streams and wetlands affects the health of larger streams, rivers, lakes, and other waters downstream. In Jackson, Josephine, and Curry counties, more than 154,000 people rely on these smaller streams as a source of their drinking water. Rolling back the Clean Water Rule puts these waters at risk.

Can you help us stand up for clean water? Let Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt know that you oppose clean water rollbacks!
