Academy Conversation: Protecting Clean Water

  • The Academy of Natural Sciences (map)

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.
