Clean Water Trust Fund
A water trust fund proposed in Congress would safeguard our national water supply and maintain it in the public trust.
Most U.S. citizens recognize that clean and safe water is a basic service that the government should provide for the public good. But if Congress doesn’t take proactive steps to protect the reliable water system built in this country nearly 100 years ago, we’re going to be faced with the breakdown of our water systems.
Because the nation faces a water infrastructure funding gap of hundreds of billions of dollars over the next 20 years, the federal government should establish this fund. If it doesn’t, we risk losing the 30 years of water quality progress enjoyed under the Clean Water Act.
In the news:
Because Public Citizen does not accept funds from corporations, professional associations or government agencies, we can remain independent and follow the truth wherever it may lead. But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
