stormwater and sediment runoff

An estimated 1.8 million to 3.5 million people become sick from contact with polluted water each year.

Up to 3.5 Million Getting Sick

We all pay the price of poorly managed polluted runoff in countless basement backups, closed beaches, flooded streets, and cancelled fishing trips. Poorly managed polluted runoff costs our communities and threatens public health.

Right now the Environmental Protection Agency has the opportunity to update programs that manage this polluted runoff - one of the major sources of pollution to our rivers and streams. Unfortunately, the Agency continues to delay in proposing these critical updates.

With your support we will continue to put pressure on the EPA. But we can only do it with your support.
