Dear Senator ___,
I am writing to urge you to support the Clean Water Restoration Act and restore the original intentions of the Clean Water Act, which has been compromised by recent Supreme Court rulings.
These rulings narrowed the scope of protections of the Clean Water Act, and as a result have allowed corporate polluters to contaminate streams, rivers, wetlands, lakes, and other previously protected waters.
The loss of Clean Water Act safeguards has put the drinking water of more than 110 million Americans in jeopardy. This is unacceptable.
The Clean Water Restoration Act will not only re-establish protections for drinking water at risk for contamination, but streamline enforcement between federal and local governments to make protection more effective. In addition, this legislation will ensure that water and wetlands used for boating, fishing, and other recreation are kept free of contamination, disease, and bacteria.
Please do your part to support the Clean Water Restoration Act. Thank you.
