EPA - help us protect clean water!

I am opposed to any and all efforts to eliminate clean water protections for waterbodies that are held in the public trust for the people of our state and our country. EPA's plan to revise the definition of “waters of the United States” (WOTUS) is a disaster waiting to happen. Already we have issues with companies illegally polluting our public trust waters. Gutting the Clean Water Act would allow industry to freely pollute our water and lead us back in time to those pre-CWA days when waterways were unprotected from polluters.
