PSR Statement on Repeal of Clean Water Rule
June 27, 2017
Press Contact: Kathy Attar, email@example.com, 323-350-2422
Washington, DC- Clean water is a public health issue for all communities. Today EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt announced the repeal of the Clean Water Rule. The rule, enacted in 2015, protects the streams and wetlands that are the headwaters of drinking water supplies for one in three U.S. residents.
"Clean drinking water is essential for everyone. Thousands of U.S. residents become ill each year from contaminated drinking water. Science demonstrates that upstream headwaters and wetlands act together to influence downstream waters by contributing clean water for drinking and recreation; filtering pollution; and reducing downstream flooding. As the climate changes and we begin to see more extreme weather events, wetlands can serve as an invaluable protection against flooding. Getting rid of the Clean Water Rule puts polluter profits before public health. Our communities won't get clean water by gutting protections for streams and wetlands." —Kathy Attar, MPH, Toxics Program Manager, Physicians for Social Responsibility
