DITCH THE MYTH:
Let’s Get Serious About Protecting Clean Water
There are concerns and misconceptions about the proposal by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to protect clean water. The proposed rule – also known as Waters of the U.S. – clarifies protection under the Clean Water Act for streams and wetlands that form the foundation of the nation’s water resources.
To address the misconceptions, EPA is providing the facts on how the proposed rule cuts through red tape to make normal farming practices easier while also ensuring that waters are clean for human health, communities, and the economy.
