Roughly 19,000 miles of Pennsylvania’s rivers and streams are damaged by pollution, putting human health, our way of life, and our economy at risk.
The state’s investments to reduce pollution continue to be inadequate, as the Keystone State lags significantly behind in meeting its clean water commitments.
State legislators are now considering appropriations for the next fiscal year. Tell them to make clean water more of a priority and to make greater investments in the next budget to save local rivers and streams. Urge them to find additional support, so the Commonwealth can reduce pollution and provide the clean water that is the right of every Pennsylvanian.
