When it comes to polluters breaking our cornerstone environmental laws or regulators who aren’t taking the proper steps to make sure polluters comply with these laws, PennEnvironment has long worked to use the power of citizen enforcement actions under the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act to address these issues. In 2013, PennEnvironment announced two legal actions to address the lax behavior of polluters and state agencies that caused more air and water pollution in Pennsylvania.
Elected officials from across Pennsylvania signed onto a letter in support of the Clean Water Rule, which adds protection to nearly 50,000 miles of streams in PA and helps to safeguard the drinking water for eight million Pennsylvanians.
Small outdoor businesses from across Pennsylvania signed onto a letter in support of the Clean Water Rule, which adds protection to nearly 50,000 miles of streams in PA and helps to safeguard the drinking water for eight million Pennsylvanians.
Due to overwhelming public support, the Clean Water Rule has now withstood every attack that polluters could muster in Congress - the Barrasso bill, the CRA measure, and now an attempted budget rider. Polluters and their allies have played all their dirty water cards in Congress and lost.
