Great Rivers Files Comments to Protect Clean Water

Today on behalf of the Missouri State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (“Missouri NAACP”), Great Rivers submitted comments on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s and the Army Corps’ proposed Revised Definition of “Waters of the United States.”  The proposed rule is a bad rule for water quality, habitat loss, and flood impacts.  The new definition would roll back protections which have been in place since President Carter held office.  Unless EPA and the Army Corps change course, this particular proposal will remove protections for at least half the remaining wetlands in the United States.
