Protect Louisiana's most scenic rivers

 

AntidegIf you’ve ever spent a day floating along the Bogue Chitto, fishing the West Pearl, or otherwise enjoying one of Louisiana’s river or streams, you know that we have some of the most beautiful landscapes and waters in the country. Many of these water bodies receive special protection as “Outstanding Natural Resource Waters,” but the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality is trying to make it easier to pollute these outstanding waters. We can’t let that happen – tell LDEQ to protect our most precious waters.

“Outstanding Natural Resource Waters” are supposed to receive the strongest possible protection under the Clean Water Act, but not if LDEQ gets their way. They are attempting to change the definition of “degradation” to make it easier to pollute these rivers and streams, and are even looking to let people who are currently illegally polluting these waters to get permits!

Please take a moment to tell LDEQ that they should be protecting our most precious rivers, not making it easier to pollute them:
