TU’s Chris Wood to Senate: “Don’t Gut the Clean Water Act”

June 18, 2014 By: Marshall Cutchin

Tomorrow morning the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee will consider an amendment to an appropriations bill that would undermine Clean Water Act protections for important trout, salmon and steelhead habitat.  Today TU CEO Chris Wood had this to say about the action:

“If Congress affirmatively prevents the federal government from re-applying the protections these rivers and streams enjoyed for the first 30 years of the Clean Water Act, it will be open season on small headwater streams and the trout and salmon that depend on them.”

If your Senator is on this list, call them today and tell them not to derail the federal government’s effort to protect small streams that grow big fish.
