We need action now to secure a clean water future for everyone. I support the goal of fishable, swimmable, drinkable water for all Americans.
Success on many of our top clean water priorities has never been closer - restoring protection for small streams and wetlands, controlling polluted runoff,
reducing toxic pollution that threatens our drinking water, and more - we just need you. This progress, and the positive momentum we're talking about didn’t happen automatically — it happened thanks to Clean Water Action members like you.
Help us keep the momentum going with a special gift to Clean Water.
The state's open-space preservation program is broke. Electric and gas transmission projects may soon traverse the New Jersey Highlands and the Pine Barrens, forested land previously set aside for protection. Questions abound on where and whether to pull back from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy along the Jersey Shore.
Not that many years ago, those issues and others likely would have emerged as top concerns and would have been hotly debated in a gubernatorial contest. Not this year: The economy apparently trumps the environment.

Dear Administrator McCarthy:
We applaud the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for proposing strong “Tier 3” clean
vehicle and fuel standards, which will make our air cleaner to breathe and save lives. We are
writing to strongly urge you to finalize these critical standards as soon as possible, in order to
maximize the economic, public health and air quality benefits that these standards deliver.

Washington – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is moving to close gaps in the Clean Water Act that have left the drinking water sources for more than 117 million Americans vulnerable to pollution and destruction. In September, EPA submitted a rule to ensure protections for nearly 20 million acres of wetlands and half of the nation’s streams for intra-agency review. EPA also released a groundbreaking scientific report that confirms what Americans have long known - our waterways are connected. Today, a coalition of environmental and wildlife advocates announced that more than 115,000 Americans have submitted comments in support of EPA’s science report and the pending rule to protect vital parts of our water infrastructure.

action on climate change. The group highlighted the public health benefits of the EPA’s new carbon pollution standards for future power plants, and urged support for action against climate change, including the President’s recently announced Climate Action Plan.
