Join us for Clean Water Day on Thursday, February 22nd to celebrate our lakes, ponds, rivers and wetlands, and call on our lawmakers to invest in cleaning up and protecting our waterways.
We can no longer take clean water for granted. Pollution from farms, development, and wastewater has impaired many of our waterways, some of which no longer meet our basic water quality standards. Without adequate short and long-term funding, pollution will continue to undermine our public health, economic vitality, and cultural identity.
Join us on Clean Water Day to tell our lawmakers it’s time to invest in clean water.
Together with farmers, businesses, and municipalities, we can turn the dial on water pollution. But the state must fund the short and long-term investments needed to ensure we meet our moral and legal clean water obligations. Lawmakers need to hear loud and clear that it’s time to invest in clean water.
On Clean Water Day we will help you set up a meeting with your lawmakers, and will provide training on how you can share your perspective on why it’s important to invest in clean water now and over the long-term.
Stay tuned for registration information and agenda!
