Comments Due Sep 27 to EPA on Saving the Waters of the U.S. Rule

link to River NetworkThe comment instruction webpage for this rule change is at: https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=EPA-HQ-OW-2017-0203-0001
When you are ready to tell EPA and the Corps of Engineers to keep and enact the 2015 Rule, click the Comment Now! button on that page. Be sure to identify yourself in the text box with your comment or you will be listed as anonymous. Please send a copy of your comments to our congressional delegation too. 

In 2015, Rivers Alliance joined with many groups, individuals and government bodies across the state and nation and across party lines to support the creation of this Rule. The implementation of the Rule was blocked by a lawsuit by a few states dominated by powerful special-interest groups. Now, the new EPA administration under President Trump is trying to abandon the adoption of this Rule and regress permanently to regulations with weaker protection of our precious water resources.

River Network has a Clean Water Rule toolkit with talking points, social media and more at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ydq_duSgQMPyEAX3I-tMlRwROyWEPLQWlPmSEGMGOpE/edit
