Academy Conversation: Protecting Clean Water

What happens if federal regulations protecting clean water are scaled back?

The federal government has proposed rolling back a key clean water protection, the Waters of the United States Rule. The proposal threatens the clean water we all depend on. Join us in a free, informal conversation with Academy scientists and water protection leaders as we discuss what this means for the Delaware River, which supplies drinking water to over 15 million people.

Speakers:

Marie Kurtz, PhD, Senior Scientist, Patrick Center for Environmental Research, Academy of Natural Sciences
Abby Jones, Esq., Staff Attorney, PennFuture 

Moderator: Carol Collier, PhD, Senior Advisor for Watershed Management and Policy, Academy of Natural Sciences
