We chose clean water. Will the Senate?
More than 740,000 people voiced their support restoring Clean Water Act protections to America's streams. Now polluters are pushing the Senate to vote to block us.
When it comes to polluters breaking our cornerstone environmental laws or regulators who aren’t taking the proper steps to make sure polluters comply with these laws, PennEnvironment has long worked to use the power of citizen enforcement actions under the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act to address these issues. In 2013, PennEnvironment announced two legal actions to address the lax behavior of polluters and state agencies that caused more air and water pollution in Pennsylvania.
