Federal Regulation of Pollutants
Waterkeeper Alliance works to secure
on-the-ground implementation and enforcement of
environmental laws, including the Clean Water
Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
(RCRA), the Clean Air Act (CAA), the
Comprehensive Environmental Response,
Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and
the Emergency Planning and Community Right to
Know Act (EPCRA).
At the federal level, to meet our goals of ensuring optimum implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, Waterkeeper Alliance focuses our administrative efforts in three main areas:
The Bush Administration passed a rule allowing factory farms to hide information about toxic pollutants. Ask the EPA to withdraw that rule and allow communities to protect themselves.
