Clean Water Restoration Act

The protection of water for use by all humanity and the rest of Creation, especially future generations and those living in poverty, is the responsibility of all of God’s people. Water is essential to all life on Earth, and it links human life to the rest of God’s Creation. Creation begins with God calling life out of the water (Genesis 1:2), and it is through water that all of Creation is gifted with life. Life, in all its forms, is not possible without water.

On Thursday of this week, S. 787, the Clean Water Restoration Act, will be taken up by the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works. This legislation would reaffirm the original intent of the 1972 Clean Water Act. S. 787 will ensure that all Americans have access to clean water and that “the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the Nation’s waters” are maintained. Click here to encourage your Senator to co-sponsor and support the Clean Water Restoration Act.

However, in recent years the health of our water sources has been jeopardized by court decisions and loopholes created by regulatory agencies that could leave hundreds of thousands of miles of streams and over 20 million acres of wetlands without federal safeguards against pollution.  You can help to ensure our nation’s continued supply of clean water by encouraging your Senator to co-sponsor and support passage of the Clean Water Restoration Act (S.787).
