Dingell: Streams, Wetlands Critical to Clean Water

December 11, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell issued the following statement after the Trump Administration announced plans to roll back protections for wetlands and clean water:

“President Trump’s latest attempt to undermine environmental protections may be his most egregious attack yet. Growing up on the river, I remember swimming in dirty water and we couldn’t eat the fish we caught. The Clean Water Act has cleaned up our waters, got rid of pollutants and dangerous toxins, and protected the water from further contamination. The reality is streams and wetlands feed into our rivers, lakes, bays, and coastal waters. Congress cannot roll back the protections to maintaining clean water across the country.”
