EPA “Dirty Water Rule” Listening Session

EPA and Army Corps announced their plans to begin the process of revising the Trump Administration’s “Dirty Water Rule,” which was the most severe attack on the Clean Water Act in history. This regulation removed Clean Water Act protections from more than half of the nation’s wetlands and streams. The Dirty Water Rule is currently in effect nationwide, putting streams and wetlands across the country at risk every day.  On Friday, EPA announced a series of listening sessions to be held this month for public input.

We would like to have robust participation in these listening sessions to ensure that the message that the Dirty Water Rule must be repealed immediately and replaced with a rule that provides strong protections is heard.  We would like to fill as many of the speaking slots as possible, so we need you to speak up!

  • August 18, 2021 from 3-5 p.m. Eastern – Registration
