We appreciate the opportunity to comment to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on nominations for the fifth drinking water Contaminant Candidate List (CCL5). The undersigned organizations represent millions of individuals concerned with ensuring that the public has access to safe drinking water.
As you’ll see in our Scorecard, Republicans in Congress have prioritized corporate polluters and campaign donors over the public every chance they have had. They have voted to slash agency budgets, undermine the science used to develop safeguards, and more.

The Honorable Andrew Wheeler
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Acting Administrator
1200 Pennsylvania Ave NW Washington DC 20460
On behalf of the undersigned 187 organizations and our millions of members and supporters across the country, we oppose the Trump administration’s attempt to repeal the 2015 Clean Water Rule and urge the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to withdraw this proposed repeal.
We need a Supreme Court Justice that will combat environmental racism and fight for environmental justice for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship status, or income – not someone who will bar the courthouse doors on them.
