Take Action Now!
Please take the time to engage in this important action:
1. Oppose changes to the Waters of the US Rule - On February 14th, the EPA published their proposed Waters of the US Rule (we are calling it the “Dirty Water Rule”) in the federal register, starting a 60-day comment period. This rule would strip Clean Water Act protections from streams that do not flow year round and from any wetland that is not directly connected to a stream that flows year round. (More than 90% of New Mexico's waters are ephemeral.) Please click on the first link below to send a comment.
