5/2: Reject Clean Water Exemptions for Municipal Polluters!
The Minnesota Legislature wants to exempt cities that build public water treatment facilities from having to make technological updates to comply with clean water standards for 16 years. This legislation undermines the state's ability to protect our water from known and future contaminants that harm our health and environment. In addition to delaying actions to clean-up pollution, this legislation also creates more uncertainty for permit-holders by putting state-issued water pollution permits at odds with the requirements of the federal Clean Water Act.
Tell Governor Dayton: I do not support delays and loopholes that endanger our state's waters. Please VETO legislation giving municipal polluters a 16-year exemption from clean water standards.
