Americans care about safeguarding our waterways from pollution, and providing safe, clean drinking water to everyone. For this reason, the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers will soon release the final Clean Water Rule, which will restore Clean Water Act protections for small streams and wetlands that feed into our water supply. LCV released a new poll that found that the Clean Water Rule is overwhelmingly supported by 80% of Americans, while 69% of voters say they will judge their Senator less favorably if they vote to block this critical rule. At the same time, 77% of voters also indicated they trust the EPA more than Congress to protect their waterways from pollution. The American people want the Clean Water Rule to protect America’s clean drinking water and waterways for generations to come.
