Write to your newspaper!
Dear John,On October 18, our nation’s most critical law for safeguarding our waters for swimming, fishing, and drinking—the Clean Water Act—turns 40 years old.

Now, as we reflect on 40 years of Clean Water Act protections, our leaders must work to improve and clean our waters further, not go back to those toxic days of unfettered industrial dumping, when our rivers caught on fire, and our lakes were declared dead, and families were warned not to eat the fish from their local waterways.

Will you write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper?

You’ve sent letters to your congressional representatives, you’ve made calls to your senators, you’ve signed petitions, and you’ve told your friends about the importance of protecting clean water and defending the Clean Water Act. As this landmark law turns 40 this month, amid continued Congressional attacks on it and attempts to weaken it, the next step is to make your voice public and write your local newspaper in support of stronger national clean water protections.

Will you write a letter to your local editor calling on your members of Congress to uphold and strengthen the Clean Water Act on this anniversary?

Thank you,
