Annual Report - 2014
There’s a very good reason the cover of our latest Annual Report (2014) features what we like to think of as a “happy picture.” You’ll understand what I’m talking about when you check out the Big Win for Our Water article.
It’s nice to know that we’re making progress and that there’s good news to report from time to time -- despite having our hands full with a Congress whose leaders seem determined to undermine our most fundamental environmental and health protections.
Yes, 2014 brought good news for our water, and, so far, 2015 is continuing that momentum. The Obama Administration’s Clean Water Rule, finalized this spring, will go a long way to close Clean Water Act loopholes, restoring protections for small streams, wetlands and drinking water.
As we wrote in the report, we view this victory and the positive momentum we see coming in its wake as a case study for how our signature program strategies can offer progress and hope in the most challenging of circumstances. To put it another way, we couldn’t have done this without you.
We’re in this for the long haul, and having you as part of our team, makes it all possible.
Thanks for all you do for our water, now and for the future.
Yours for clean water,
Robert Wendelgass, President & CEO
Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund
