FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Chuck Porcari, (202) 785-8683; Mark Sokolove, (202) 785-8683 May 19, 2005  

WASHINGTON - The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Deb Callahan today issued the following statement after the EPA decided not to finalize a controversial plan to allow sewage blending:

"Today's decision is a victory for public health and protecting our drinking water supplies - one of the government's most basic functions.

As the House of Representatives considers the Interior spending bill today, we urge members to support the bipartisan amendment offered by Reps. Bart Stupak (D-MI), Clay Shaw (R-FL), Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Jeff Miller (R-FL) to send a message that Congress, reflecting the will of the American people, supports protecting lakes, rivers, streams, and drinking water."
