Defend PA’s cornerstone law for protecting our streams

Legislation is moving in the Pennsylvania General Assembly that would eviscerate the Clean Streams Law, the state’s best program for protecting our rivers and streams from pollution. Senate Bill 619 would fundamentally change the definition of pollution under the law. If it passes, most spills and discharges into our streams and rivers would no longer be categorized as “water pollution,” polluters would be allowed to decide when they report spills to state environmental officials, and our state environmental officials could no longer force them to clean up their messes.

We must stop this attack on our clean water laws. Email your state representative and tell them to oppose SB619 today.
