We are the Pennsylvania lead for the Choose Clean Water Coalition, a multi-state group whose primary goal is to protect and enhance the water quality of the Chesapeake Bay and the area that drains into it — including our own Susquehanna River.
In a major victory for clean water and for the 17 million people who live in this watershed, a federal judge upheld Bay clean-up plans championed by our coalition of public interest groups and rejected claims made by big agricultural interests and developers. The ruling affirmed that pollution limits established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are within the EPA's authority and are based on sound science.
From another angle, PennFuture continually works to compel the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) to improve its water quality protection programs, including more aggressive oversight of gas development in its watershed.
Please join us to preserve and protect our precious water resources.
