Please take a moment to express your opposition to EPA's proposal to rescind the Clean Water Rule and your support for protecting the Nation's headwater streams and wetlands. In a very busy year, this is one of the most important actions we are asking you to take. The deadline for comment has been extended to September 27, 2017.

Earlier this month the EPA announced a proposed rule that would rescind the 2015 Clean Water Rule. The 2015 Clean Water Rule did a good job of clarifying and restoring Clean Water Act protections for headwater streams and wetlands. President Trump directed his EPA to rescind the 2015 Clean Water Rule and revert back to a far less protective standard. The new proposal includes a very short comment period for public feedback on the rollback process.
