PennFuture Submits Legal Comments Supporting Clean Water Rule

PennFuture submitted legal comments in support of the Clean Water Rule to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt on Wednesday, Dec. 13.

"Adding a new applicability date to the Clean Water Rule as proposed is designed to essentially override the August 28, 2015 effective date of the Clean Water Rule. Delaying the effective date as proposed by the Proposed Delay Rule, especially after the Rule has already gone into effect in some states, is neither desirable nor appropriate and doing so would only lead to confusion and would jeopardize the health of those waters that support industry, recreation, commerce, and clean drinking water across Pennsylvania and the United States."
