House-Senate Joint Hearing on the Clean Water Rule
Sixty percent of streams and millions of acres of wetlands across the country aren’t clearly protected from pollution and destruction. One in three Americans get their drinking water from these streams that are vulnerable. To have clean water downstream in the rivers and lakes in our neighborhoods we need healthy headwaters upstream. That is why the EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have proposed to strengthen protections for the clean water that is vital to all Americans.
