Trust for America's Health (TFAH) releases a new issue brief, The Clean Water Rule: Clearing Up Confusion to Protect Public Health. The brief lays out why the Rule was necessary, how it will improve and protect American's health, and the status of the Rule moving forward.
Safe and clean water is a vital part of life. It is important for drinking, recreation, hygiene, industry and agriculture. Clean water is especially essential for limiting infectious diseases and preventing their spread - just as dirty water contributes directly to poor public health. Moving forward, the Clean Water Rule will strengthen protections for our water supply even further, reducing instances of waterborne illness and fulfilling the intent of the Clean Water Act.
The brief is available on TFAH's website at www.healthyamericans.org.
