Clean Water Act Celebrates 40th Anniversary
EPA launches website as central information resource on anniversary
This year is the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, the nation’s law for protecting our most irreplaceable resource. Throughout the year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and others will highlight the tremendous progress in reducing pollution since 1972, the many milestones along the way, the ways that the job is far from over and the tough challenges faced today and in the future. EPA has set up a webpage, www.epa.gov/cleanwater40, as the central location for information, activities, news and networking.
