The grassroots environmental advocacy organization, Clean Water Action, has officially endorsed Tirza Wahrman for mayor of West Windsor.
David Foster, Clean Water Action Texas Director, said: "Delegating the authority to enforce the federal Clean Water Act to a state only works if that state actually implements the law. The TCEQ's failure to do this has exposed Texas waterways and the people and ecosystems that depend on them to enormous risk. It's time for EPA to take matters into its own hands."

"This ruling affirms what we have said since the beginning -- the Dirty Water Rule was sloppy, ignored the latest scientific findings about water quality, and put vital water bodies at risk of pollution and destruction."
Today, Clean Water Action and the Climate Action Campaign (CAC) hosted a virtual press conference with local community advocates to highlight recent extreme weather along the Jersey Shore and urge Rep. Andy Kim (NJ-03) to fight for major investments to combat climate change through the Build Back Better Budget.
