Nothing that the administration does will change the facts that pipelines spill and that these projects jeopardize drinking water for millions.
Anne Hulick, Connecticut director for Clean Water Action, said, “It was not long ago that rivers were dumping grounds for debris and toxic chemicals and the Cuyahoga River caught fire. World Water Day is a day to celebrate how far we’ve come and to make sure we continue to protect this most precious resource.”
"This is a reckless and dangerous budget. It's also completely unsurprising. President Trump has made his priorities perfectly clear - he will put polluters first at all costs."
Concerned Michiganders hand deliver thousands of public comments
LANSING – Today, Clean Water Action members delivered over 5,000 hand written public comments calling on the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to deny Nestle Ice Mountain’s permit request to expand water withdrawal by 167% from the Great Lakes basin.
David Pringle, Clean Water Action’s NJ Campaign Director, issued the following statement in response to Governor Christie’s budget address this afternoon.
"Chris Christie made it clear today that he is not in touch with reality. It’s time for him to get out of La-La Land and face the real world.
Just because he says something doesn’t make it true.
He says New Jersey’s economy is booming, but it’s not. Being one of the slowest states to recover from the greatest economic crisis of the last 80 years isn’t something to crow about.
"Water pollution doesn't stop itself. If these reports are accurate, the President is putting public health and water at risk."
We don't get clean water by gutting protections for streams and wetlands and we won't protect public health by ignoring science.
The vote must be delayed until these new emails can be reviewed. Anything else is a massive disservice to Americans."
