40 years ago, Congress passed the Clean Water Act.
What happened to the cleaner, healthier, and more prosperous future
they committed to?
In 1972, the people of the United States were witness to the first significant effort by their government to end water pollution entirely.
The Clean Water Act (CWA) as meant to be the start of a cleaner, healthier, more prosperous society.
The CWA promotes citizen participation, uses permit processes to regulate pollution, and governs the dynamic of federal and state powers.
It remains our major law governing national and international water pollution.
As we pass the 40th Anniversary of the most influential amendments to the CWA
it's time to look at what we have accomplished and what work is still left to be done.
You can attend our Mock Hearing on the 40th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act, Friday April 26th.
