Statement from Cindy Lowry regarding the Repeal of the Clean Water Rule:
Two years ago, the Clean Water Rule was developed after extensive scientific analysis and millions of citizen and stakeholder comments and is designed to protect ALL our waters from dangerous pollution. When we think about Alabama’s water resources, we know that rainfall moves from the land into our creeks and streams, into bigger streams, into main stem rivers and on down to the Mobile Bay and Gulf of Mexico. On the journey, it also runs across our yards, our driveways, the parks where our children play, the fields where our food grows and sometimes even into our basements! There is no point in this cycle that I would want to take a chance on that water not being covered by the protections of the Clean Water Act. Repealing the Clean Water Rule puts us all at risk and we are not willing to take that chance. Please let Scott Pruitt know that you do NOT want to take that chance, and neither should any American!
