EPA releases Draft Clean Water Strategy and seeks further comment.

On August 20, 2010, the EPA posted its Draft Clean Water Strategy for review and comment. The Draft resulted from the Coming Together for Clean Water Conference which was hosted by EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson this past April. The Draft identifies the challenges to continuing the efforts launched by the 1972 passage of the Clean Water Act. While acknowledging the significant progress that has occurred since then, the community involved recognizes that much more needs to be done to revitalize the resources. The Draft further presents the significant economic benefits which can be realized from having clean water and in taking the actions and building the infrastructure to achieve the goals. The Draft demonstrates the continued viewpoint that environmental protection is not a drain on economic growth but a significant component of our development. A copy of the Draft, information on the April conference, and information on providing comments on the draft, can be found on the EPA website at: http://blog.epa.gov/waterforum/ Comments will be accepted until September 17, 2010.
