On February 23, we are recognizing the tireless efforts of a champion legislator and celebrating a new partnership for clean water. Please join us!
Clean Water is proud to partner with Maryland's own Heavy Seas Beer to raise awareness about the importance of clean water because, as Heavy Seas Founder Hugh Sisson puts it, "Without clean water there is no beer!"
It’s the last few days of session and legislation to protect stormwater funding programs for communities hangs in the balance. With your help, we were able to pass a vastly improved stormwater funding bill (SB863) out of the Senate a few weeks ago. However, opponents have been able to gain momentum in the House to undo some of those changes.
In 1983, 1987 and 2000, Maryland Governors and their counterparts in Virginia, the District of Columbia and other jurisdictions in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed signed formal agreements that set timelines for cleaning up the Bay. The most recent agreement called for deadlines that were to be met by 2010. That deadline will not be met. Clean Water Action supported the strongest possible version of this latest agreement, understanding that we would continue fighting for the enforcement of the Clean Water Act as the likeliest means restoring the Bay.
